Familiarise yourself with the competence standards of your subject area (i.e. any standards applied by or on behalf of your subject’s qualifications body or trade organisation in order to determine a particular level of competence or ability). Part 2 of the DDA requires qualifications bodies to ensure that they do not discriminate against people with disabilities entering a profession or trade. The competence standards determine that the professional standards are clearly defined and are distinctly related to the trade or profession. Reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities should be made to enable them to meet the standards set. For more details, please contact the appropriate qualifications body or trade organisation.
