Kaela Cheffins, a student from the EKC Group (Canterbury College), has been appointed as a regional champion as part of a national campaign by the British Youth Council to improve access to assistive technology for students with learning differences or disabilities in Further Education (FE) colleges.

The Access and Assistance for All campaign brings together young people and specialists in assistive technology and progression for students with learning differences and difficulties in further education from across the 9 regions of England.

Together, the regional champions and partners, including KMPF, have formed a ‘Coalition of Change’ with the aim of ensuring that young people with learning differences and difficulties in further education have access to the technical support that they are entitled to, improving their chances of achieving their goals and fulfilling their potential.
