  • Live captions will be available
  • Facilitators will regularly summarise discussions in the chat function
  • Regular screen breaks will be programmed into the agenda, and will be adhered to
  • The sessions will be recorded for programme participants to watch again, or access if they were unable to attend the full session
  • Slides used in the presentations will be shared in advance (at least 1 week before the session)
  • Video webinars with audio narration and closed captions
  • Online networking through Basecamp
  • Webpages, documents and Padlet boards for self-directed learning

You can read the NCCPE’s Accessible and Inclusive Practice Guidelines here.


Applications will be assessed by UKAN and NCCPE based on their potential benefit to the applicant.

In addition, we will select applicants to ensure a balance of different perspectives, disciplines, expertise and affiliations. We hope that the full cohort will have spread across UKAN’s remit, including those from university, industry and the third sector.
