To achieve accreditation, RNIB College Loughborough was assessed on its individual plans and objectives, sensory and behaviours support, and training and policies. The assessors spoke to students and staff to gain an understanding of the College's person-centred approach as well as observing students in class and at external work placements.
Principal June Murray said:
“We’re delighted to have achieved this highly regarded accreditation, which gives confidence to families who may be considering our provision for someone with autism.”
