The Regional Access Centre East London (RACEL) was established in 1999 to undertake Study Needs Assessments; during this time, we have undertaken over 10,000 Needs Assessments.
RACEL undertakes assessments for students with all disabilities and has a group of assessors who, collectively, have over 80 years of experience providing Study Needs Assessments.
We set ourselves high standards for quality and use the Department for Education Quality Assurance Framework as our basis for quality control. We aim to exceed these standards wherever possible.
RACEL has an extensive range of Assistive Technologies available for demonstration and trial during the assessment and regularly researches new products as they come to market, to ensure that we are aware of new developments.
We have excellent working relationships with other stakeholders within the DSA sector including funding bodies and suppliers and can provide an excellent standard of support and aftercare to those students who use our Centre.
At RACEL we are passionate about helping you to achieve your academic goals. You can expect a friendly and efficient service from our experienced staff, who will be happy to answer any of your questions or concerns.
Our main centre is situated in Stratford, with excellent transport links for students based in London and the South East. We are very close to facilities at the Westfield Shopping Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
We also have an outreach centre located at the Docklands campus of the University of East London set in a beautiful, dynamic location, right next to the river, with the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) on our doorstep.
