Additional Learning Needs Support

Many students, for a variety of reasons, need extra help to succeed with their studies and achieve their potential. The College has an excellent record of supporting students with Additional Learning Needs (ALN) and Disabilities. Our students are supported in a caring and nurturing environment by our specialist support team.

All our full-time students are given an informal assessment of support needs at the start of the course or at the interview. We are flexible in our approach and we realise that needs change over time; we carry out regular reviews of students’ learning needs and adapt any support to provide the best possible outcomes.

We believe in involving students from the very beginning, placing them at the centre of the planning and decision-making process. We work closely with parents, schools, and outside agencies to ensure that the transition into college runs smoothly.

Our team are located throughout all our campuses Student Zones and are available to offer advice, guidance, and support to all students.
