Additional Learning Support

If you have a learning difficulty or disability, our Additional Learning Support team is on hand to support you through your time at the College. Working with you, we will make reasonable adjustments to our services to ensure college is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

HELPING YOU GET THE SUPPORT YOU NEED TO THRIVE AT COLLEGE

If you need extra help with your studies, our Additional Support Team can help you and your lecturers tailor support to aid in moving you towards independence.

This could include providing in-class or out-of-class support for literacy, numeracy and study skills, working with a Learning Support Assistant (LSA) in class or Communication Support Worker (CSW).

SPECIALIST SUPPORT

Specialist support is available for students with additional needs, including neurodiverse conditions such as Dyslexia, as well as learning and physical disabilities.

We offer a range of adaptive equipment and software for students with hearing or visual impairments.

Facilities such as ramps, hoists, lifts and specialised toilets are available.

Please talk to us about your support needs as soon as possible, so we can discuss your requirements to help you study and achieve on your course.

ASC PROVISION

Social and communication skills are an essential part of everyday life, and we have experienced and qualified lecturers on hand to teach social and communication skills in structured sessions and workshops.

EXAM SUPPORT

We know some students will require special arrangements when taking exams and support can be provided, in accordance with awarding bodies’ guidelines.

Dependent on your assessment results, scribes and readers may be available, and assistive equipment may be borrowed.

YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE ‘CARE EXPERIENCED’

We have an additional support in place for young people who are care experienced, as well as young refugees and asylum seekers to assist their transition and journey though college.
