Study Support

Our specialist staff at NPTC Group of Colleges offer exceptional levels of support to students with Additional Learning Needs (ALN) and disabilities.

We believe in involving students from the very beginning, placing them at the centre of the planning and decision-making process.

The College has an excellent record of supporting students with ALN and disabilities and we work closely with parents, schools and outside agencies to ensure that the transition into college runs smoothly.

Our students with ALN and disabilities are supported in a caring environment to reach their potential and to equally access the curriculum.

Our team has a wealth of experience and are dedicated to providing high-quality support. We are a highly responsive team and our aim is to nurture students towards greater independence.

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 our support provision to provide the best possible outcomes.

Each of our campuses has a designated discrete ‘Student Zone’. These areas are specified as a quiet space for students to work, study or relax.

We offer a wide range of services and support for our students, including:

  • Hearing/Visual Impairment Support
