The Library

Disabled and Dyslexic Users

Do you use Pro-Study software to help with your studies?

If so, the company who make the software are looking for a student who would be willing to help them promote the software to disability support staff.  You would be asked to talk at a maximum of 4 webinars about how you use Pro-Study for your University studies and answer some questions. Each webinar would be a maximum of an hour long but you would only need to speak for about 10 minutes. You will receive a £100 Amazon voucher as a thank you and you will be able to add it to your CV.  If you are interested in taking part please email disability.lc@leedsbeckett.ac.uk by 31st May and we will pass your details on to Pro-Study.
