Did you know that only 6% of disabled people have been to university?
Today, 3 December, is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. We celebrate it with a twofold goal in mind: to promote the rights and well-being of those with disabilities in all areas and to make it easier for them to play a full part in the political, social, economic and cultural life that we share.
To mark the day, we would like to take the opportunity to show how the UOC works to ensure that no student with a disability is excluded from lifelong learning.
One of the services we offer is the “Disability and Work Info Point, vocational guidance service”, where specialists from the Randstad Foundation, experts in the labour market and helping people with disabilities, will assist you in the process of improving your employability, promoting your career and accessing job opportunities
Two university coordination networks and a working group
As part of our commitment to providing top-notch disability services, we work with two university coordination networks:
Network of Support Services for People with Disabilities at University (SAPDU)
This network’s members are specialists who staff the help services for students with disability. About 50 Spanish universities have joined this network, including the UOC.
University and Disability in Catalonia Technical Committee (UNIDISCAT)
Its current members are 12 Catalan universities, but the aim is to become a space shared by all Catalan universities to promote and guarantee effective support for students with disabilities.
The UOC has set up an accessibility working group made up of faculty and administrative staff members. They work together to design and coordinate actions to improve the services and attention provided for students with a disability or learning disorder, making sure that news of these actions reaches everyone at our University. If you would like to know more, or if you are working on a related project, we want to hear from you!Get in touch by email atadaptaUOC@uoc.edu.
