Information for NMH Providers

Teaching and learning

Our programmes of study for 2020/21 will be delivered through a hybrid active teaching model with a combination of face-to-face teaching in smaller classes, laboratories, and other environments as appropriate, together with virtual teaching sessions in place of lessons that would normally take place in large groups.

Access to synchronous virtual teaching sessions

Support workers can be provided with a temporary university MWS username, which will enable them to access classes that are broadcast live; to enable remote support to be delivered effectively e.g. note-taking, BSL interpreting.  Requests should be made by the NMH provider by email:

Providing face to face support on campus

Face to face support on campus should only be provided where remote support is not suitable to meet a students’ specific needs.

The following procedure must be followed by all NMH providers to enable this activity to take place on campus:

  • NMH provider must undertake a risk assessment for each student prior to undertaking face to face support on campus
  • NMH provider must contact Disability Advice and Guidance by email: and provide a copy of the risk assessment & request a room booking (providing preferred days/times)
  • On receipt of an acceptable risk assessment, Disability Advice and Guidance will book a COVID-safe room on campus for the support sessions to take place
  • All support workers must be briefed with information relating to the University of Liverpool’s local COVID arrangements and face-covering policy.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Campus Safety Information

The university has a Covid-19 information hub that provides updated information about campus safety measures.  All support workers should be directed to the hub and access this regularly to keep updated:
