    Hi @DebP

    Have you contacted your local colleges yet? Quite often they will run courses for people with disabilities. Another option is to see if there are any formal qualifications that are run by universities or colleges. Additionally you can try enquiring at the local library as well. If you write to your local college they should definitely be able to help you.
    Good luck with your studies!! Also I suggest talking with a career advisor as well. They can provide advice. Definitely get in contact with universities and colleges.
    Are you considering a new career opportunity or something?

    Good morning @DebP
    We have some information about CP here. In case you haven't already seen it. Is the company training course to help staff work with adults?

    I guess that you search for professional certifications (that they can do from their home) and distance learning programs from universities. The vast majority of the UK universities offer distance learning programs with a normally recognized degree, the negative thing is the ability to get a student loan, etc. If the financing is not the matter then it should be easy, you don't have any hard role... Just "send them" (it'd be a typical distance learning program that runs in each one of EU countries and the US for the last one century) to universities for certifications and degrees.

    If movement is the only issue then no special support is needed, I don't have it either and am fine on 3 fronts. All at the same time, I study in a full-time program against a normal Bachelor's in computer science + I study against a professional certification in data science from IBM (a 1/2 year study, then other certs) + I normally work on full-time in a normal job (+ sometimes, I take a freelance work) : ) and will need to add a volunteering/internship. If I can then can everyone? I think so... And you? Someone would think so. But surely, they can do one of the things, easily.

    Best regards,

    "From 1 January 2020, the assumed yearly necessity that must be paid into the blocked record when applying for a visa will increment to 10,236 euros. This expanded sum applies Bachelors degree in germany to all visa applications submitted from 1 September 2019," the Federal Foreign Office said in a notice distributed on their site.
