The main aim of the ETTAD project is to Enable Teachers and Trainers to improve the accessibility of Adult Education for people with disabilities.

The project will produce a web-based resource for teachers and trainers that will identify potential challenges that disabled learners might experience in engaging with their courses. The resource will also offer strategies and recommendations for adjustments to practice. Such strategies/more inclusive practices that will enable disabled learners to overcome these challenges and this will allow them to participate more fully in adult education.

For the purposes of the project, adult education is defined as non-vocational learning which may lead to enhanced employability but focuses on learning for personal, civic and social purposes. Adults are those aged 25 and over who have completed/left initial education and training.

The web resource will be undergoing a period of testing and review in the coming months and will go live in May 2009.
