I'm an M.E sufferer, who has a BA and an MA, so I have managed the condition while I studied. I've a place on a PGCE for Sept, and I'm looking for advice about reasonable adjustments for a disability, both in training year and in work as a teacher. I don't know exactly what the term means - in either instance. I know that someone with my condition could ask for flexible working hours, some work at home, timetabling flexibility for their work/meetings/in this case, classes, some alternation to a job description. This I know from talking to disability work advisors at careers advice centres and job centre advisors - but I don't know how this translates into teaching, or training. I do need to know, so that I know what I can and cannot ask for. Do you think you can help me? The PGCE providers were very keen to say, this is a demanding job, you will be standing up all day, you will have x amount of work, responsibility, it will be tough, etc. It's just that, I also know that careers advice and disability careers organisations tell me that I should not be put off by that kind of talk, as I have rights and adjustments available to make my part of it a career that I can do. What's your opinion and perspective and can you talk me through any of this or any examples? thank you.
