The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) launches revised guidance for disabled people who are considering training or currently training to become a professional regulated by the HCPC.

The guide will also be useful for individuals working in education and training, careers advisors, and those teaching, supervising or supporting disabled students as well as occupational health professionals.

There are four sections which include information about HCPC and our standards, useful information for disabled people, a section for education providers and also where to find more dedicated online resources on health and disability.

It now includes new guidance on disclosing disabilities, detailed examples of reasonable adjustments to reflect complex cases and comprehensive outlines of education providers’ responsibilities.
