Commercial Skills has a responsibility to ensure all learners have equal opportunities to reach their full potential and are committed to guiding learners through the the process with us and/or the relevant awarding organisation.
We recognise that reasonable adjustments or special consideration may be required at the time of studying and/or assessment where learners:
- Have a disability, medical condition, mental health difficulty or a specific learning difficulty.
- Experience an illness, injury, or some other event outside of their control, that has an impact on the outcomes of assignments, assessments and examinations
Depending on the qualification type and assessment method method the application for a reasonable adjustment or special consideration may differ and can be found below however we recommend that learners first notify Commercial Skills before following these procedures for guidance and assistance and in case Commercial Skills can offer their own adjustment and considerations.
