At least 1 in 8 students are neurodiverse (this includes conditions such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, ASD and Developmental Language Disorders) but not all students arrive at college with a diagnosis or have had previous support for a variety of reasons. This may include moving around the education system (Looked after Young People) and lower recognition of traits in females.
Using online robust tools for screening for neurodiversity and assessing studying skills at induction allows for practical and student-centred support for those who require it in a timely manner.
Interactive apps can also support the student when moving from college into work. The Do-IT Profiler accessible web-based system allows this to happen.

Certification of education and training is not a new concept in Denmark or other countries, as several forms of certification and accreditation already exist, but certifying vocational courses offered via e-learning is a new development. In this context, e-learning is treated as an overarching term which encompasses blended learning as well as purely web-based learning (distance learning). The pilot certification scheme covers descriptions of the objectives, content and organisation of e-learning courses, taking into account the participants’ prior learning.
