Welcome to the NatSIP Website

This website offers access to a wealth of SI resources, most of which are behind a login wall: you need to be registered on the site and logged in before you can access them.

Also, you can't use (or see) the site search until you have logged in.

We ask you to register not because we are checking up on anyone, but because we need to show to the DfE and other organisations supporting NatSIP that our resources are being used in the SI community.

Registration is free, and open to anyone.  A walkthrough/howto on the registration process is here.

NDCS have published a number of new and updated resources:

Updated

Breaking the Sound Barrier: A guide to recruiting and supporting deaf colleagues has been updated in light of the disability ‘two ticks’ scheme changing to ‘disability confident’. The updated version is on the website and we also have hard copies in stock.

The Scotland version of Know Your Rights: Getting support from your local council is currently being updated following a change to the law over the summer. This will be ready to download in the next week or two. Printed copies will be available from around August next year when NDCS have more certainty around what these policy changes mean.
