Reasonable Adjustments Policy


WingsWay will be guided by the Policies and Standards set by the International Awarding Bodies & Govt. Auth.

Introduction: WingsWay Training Institute is committed to high levels of quality assurance and policies that are open, transparent and free
from bias. We have a responsibility to ensure that all candidates have an equal opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge, skills or
understanding to the level of attainment required within each qualification, and those barriers to entry are removed where possible. It is our
responsibility to ensure that appropriate adjustments are made for candidates during the learning process, and we will ensure that
candidates are given appropriate adjustments to the assessment process to give them an equal opportunity.

NB: WingsWay will not adjust standards or pass marks. Adjustments must be reasonable and not give the candidate an unfair advantage.
