The Mesma Cognassist LDD Framework


We developed the Learning Difficulty or Disability (LDD) quality assurance self assessment framework in partnership with our colleagues at Cognassist and in consultation with a working group of sector specialists.

“True quality and true equality incorporate educational equity.”
Dr Louise Karwowski, Cognassist.

The LDD QA Framework is a free-of-charge self assessment tool available to all further education and apprenticeship providers.

The framework is available on the Mesma QA software platform. It takes you step by step through the 5 key stages or “pillars” of the learner journey and facilitates your own self-reflection.

Recently the regulatory and funding spotlight has been set on equality and ensuring that every learner is supported. In this webinar, we looked at the framework in the context of the 2023 apprenticeship funding rule changes in England. The content is relevant to all education providers.
