Learning Support

Our aim is to enable students to fully participate in College life and to achieve their goals. Our Learning Support team offers a wide range of advice, guidance and support to help students to succeed.

The need for learning support may arise from a learning difficulty or disability but any student may have a learning support need whilst at College. A learning support need is anything which is a barrier to learning; anything which could prevent you from achieving your learning goals. If you are one of these students – don’t worry! We will help you to achieve.

The earlier you let us know that you might need some support the better. We may be able to provide support in the classroom, out of class and also in your exams, depending on your needs.

If think you may need some extra support contact us using the details below and we will arrange a time to meet you to discuss your needs and the support availabe.
