Statement: "The University of Sheffield will not allow other contractors to provide support workers for disabled students unless there is a contract in place in accordance with the University's procurement policy. The only exception to this would be if assessors are concerned that a different provider would be in a student's best interest on grounds of their disability or if the support was unable to be provided in-house. For example, mobility training, Strategy Support for students with ASD, Teacher for Deaf People, IT Training etc. Assessors are therefore asked to only provide one quote for The University of Sheffield Students, i.e. for the in-house support worker service."
