What is a SHU Support Worker and how can I get one?
Support workers are people who are paid to work with students for specific reasons, as part of their disabled student support.
Here are a couple of examples of support workers and their roles, but every student who accesses our services will be assessed on an individual basis.
Take notes on behalf of disabled students who can't take their own notes for disability-related reasons. For example, note-takers work with students who have a hearing loss and can't hear the lecturer.
Practical Support Assistants...
Work with students who need assistance getting around campus. For example, students who can't carry heavy objects may work with a personal assistant in the library to retrieve books.
