Something to explain what this does

What does the Dubai Universal Design Code mean for schools?

Direct Access has worked with over 800 schools, universities, nurseries and specialist provision over the past fifteen years. Registered as an Incensu approved educational supplier, Direct Access has been using this experience to inform schools in the Middle East about how to comply with local disability legislation in the country of operation.

We were invited to write an article for Teach Middle East on the impact of the Dubai Universal Design Code on accessibility of schools within the Emirate of Dubai. We recommended an access audit is carried out to ascertain the status of a school in compliance with the Code and to inform the production of a report to retrofit where advisable to do so. Such a report would be required by the Municipality Building Control as well as being useful evidence for School Inspectors in how accessible a school is.
