Our client came to us as a result of a failed placement year on a professional skills course which was government funded. Our client had failed on this course due to mitigating circumstances and a disability which had not yet been fully diagnosed or disclosed to the University. Our client explained his problem to us upon initially seeking our advice. We immediately instructed a medical professional to assess her. We wrote to the University as they had concluded that she was not fit to practise and we disclosed the medical expert’s report. Upon going through the Fitness to Practise appeal process, the University reinstated our client and agreed to pay for her course fees. She is currently working towards completing her placement with reasonable adjustments and support that she should have had previously.
