Disability

Because we're committed to disability equality, if you need reasonable adjustments to participate in college life we'll do all we can to meet your requirements.

We're proud to promote the Social Model of Disability, which suggests that society creates attitudinal, institutional, and environmental disabling barriers for people with impairments. We follow their positive approach to disability and focus instead on removing barriers to equality.

DisabledGo Access Guides

DisabledGo have conducted detailed access assessments of all our buildings and the majority of our support services. Relevant guides were then published online, giving users plenty of info about their particular needs. For these access guides and further details, please visit the DisabledGo website:

Disability Awareness Month

December is Disability Awareness Month in the college, incorporating World AIDS Day on December 1st, International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3rd and Human Rights Day on December 10th.

Despite equality in the law and some improvements in societal attitudes, disabled people are still disadvantaged in many aspects of their lives, being more likely to be the victims of crime, more likely to earn a low wage or be out of work, and less likely to gain qualifications than non-disabled people.

City of Glasgow College is committed to working to overcome the barriers faced by disabled people and hope to raise awareness about these issues through a series of college-wide events and activities with which staff and students alike can get involved.
