Staff with Disabilities Network

Unfortunately, planned University events (including social gatherings) have been cancelled with immediate effect. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Our aims

  • To support the development of a positive culture for staff with disabilities at the University of Plymouth.
  • To act as an information/welcome point for all colleagues with disabilities.
  • To provide an opportunity for staff with disabilities to network both inside and outside the University and to offer possibilities for social and professional peer support and mentoring for all staff.
  • To advise and give feedback on University policy development and associated practice.

Ally For Staff

To help support staff with accessibility improvements and the use of Ally, a series of workshops will be facilitated by Digital Education.  

These workshops will:  

  • introduce key considerations for accessibility, including the change in recent legislation and what this means for teaching and learning content.  
  • Demonstrate Ally for Moodle along with tips and tricks on creating accessible content.  
  • These workshops support the materials we have updated on the DLE, 'Creating Accessible Content'.
