Students with disabilities

TEOs[1] are expected to ensure equity of access and opportunity for people with disabilities and to provide the support these students require for full participation (in keeping with the Tertiary Education Strategy). In order to access government funding, TEOs must work towards meeting government objectives outlined in the Tertiary Education Strategy.

Kia orite, Achieving equity: The New Zealand code of practice for an inclusive tertiary education environment for students with impairment (PDF 806 Kb) supports an inclusive tertiary education environment for students with impairment. It is designed to assist TEOs to work towards equity of access and opportunity for their students with impairments.
