As part of Senclude’s Inclusive Practice and Equality of Provision the following considerations must be applied to any Needs Assessor considering using Senclude as an Non-Medical Help provider. Senclude is supported by SFE in this instance.

Visually Impaired staff require screen sharing to be built into the recommendation of support in both face to face support and distance support sessions. This so that any Visually Impaired member of staff can view through use of Assistive Technology, in real time, the learner’s computer screen and advise with more confidence on learning points under review in each support session.

In the spirit of lowering carbon emissions, sometimes it may not be necessary to be sat side-by-side to have a Support Session and therefore, Positive Environmental Actions are fully supported by Senclude and we hope supported by you too!

Needs Assessors and Students are welcome to trial this experience with Senclude if considering Senclude as an NMH provider through appointments made via:
