A Module Delivery Constraint or MDC is an acknowledgement that some module runs:
rely on a particular staff member for delivery, who may have either a part time contract, agreed flexible working or agreed compressed hours which restricts their hours of teaching to certain days / times which are captured and approved through the staff teaching constraints process.
- rely on a particular staff member who may need reasonable adjustments for disability, impairment or other item covered under the Equality Act 2010.
- are taught in blocks and advertised as such eg taught in one full time week.
- are taught on set days or in the evenings or weekends and are advertised as such.
- have specific requirements for example, daylight, field trips and so have to be taught at particular times of day.
Module Delivery Constraints last for the period of one academic year and must be reviewed and renewed on an annual basis.
Please include all staff accessibility requirements in your Module Delivery Constraints. This would include requirements for wheelchair or level access, hearing loops or special equipment.
If there are any changes to the data after this date then we will need you to provide details of adjustments required as soon as possible as we will be in the process of rooming the teaching. The later any changes are received, the harder it is to accommodate them.
