Within Trinity, each school appoints an Academic Liaison Officer (ALO), to act as a mediator between staff and disabled students within their school. The ALO works with the the Disability Service to ensure that reasonable accomodations are put in place for disabled students. The role of the Academic Liaison Officer includes:

  • Circulation of Needs Assessment reports (LENS), to relevant staff within the school
  • Ensure that supports recommended within LENS assessments are put in place at department/school level
  • To act as a local contact for students with disabilities

A full list of all current ALOs for each academic area can be found by clicking on this link.
