Learning Support

Starting college is one of the most exciting things you can do. Making new friends, studying something new, and making your own decisions are all positive experiences, but if you feel you need some advice or information, we’re here to help.

The College’s Universal Learning Provision includes lots of different support available to all learners. There is support with literacy, numeracy and digital skills; Welfare and Wellbeing support to help with personal issues as well as tutor support and guidance

Additional Learning Support

Universal Learning provision is likely to meet the needs of most learners, but some learners may require Additional Learning Provision.

If you have a disability, sensory impairment or additional learning need such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD or ASD; had a Statement (SEN) or support in school and think you need extra help in College, then please let us know.

You can tell us on your application form, speak to someone from support at interview or ask someone to contact you. Telling us as early as possible helps make sure the right support for you is in place.

Our friendly, experienced and qualified Additional Learning Provision team meet a range of individual needs. Learning Support Assistants provide close support and work with small groups in and out of class. Specialist assessors arrange access arrangements in exams and provide specific support. Learning Coaches provide extra support through the I2A project and help make settling into college easier. We understand that college is not just about taking a course – it is about preparing for work or further study, meeting new people and enjoying what you do and you can be confident that there is support available.
