Regional Vision Resource Base (RVRB)

The Regional Vision Resource Base (RVRB) is a new service funded by DE and hosted by the BELB which will support the Northern Ireland education and library boards’ vision support services.


The RVRB will provide a transcription service that will create electronic and hard copies of adapted materials and a Learning Support Service on issues such as equipment and technology.


The resource base is managed by a qualified teacher of the visually impaired (QTVI) assisted by technical support.


Through the work of the resource base we aim to help enable each pupil to become an independent and effective learner by opening up wider access to the Northern Ireland Curriculum.
