Learning Support

Learning Support

Learning Support is a support service for learners with a range of additional needs. We can provide additional support for you if you have a learning difficulty, disability, medical condition, literacy, numeracy or language needs. It’s available to all learners subject to assessment and agreement of need and resources.

How can you receive additional learning support?

At enrolment, just place a tick in the box and one of our Learning Support Team staff will contact you.

Talk to your tutor if you need any extra help

If you think you would benefit from learning support, you can discuss it in confidence and your tutor will help you.  The tutor will arrange for someone from the Learning Support Team to come and talk to you.

If you need a piece of equipment we can investigate what is available and assess if we are able to purchase the equipment identified to support in your learning.

What happens when you have requested additional help?

You will be contacted by a member of the Learning Support Team either on the telephone or in person.

You will be invited to attend an initial assessment where we will discuss your needs with you.  You may be asked to provide evidence of their need for support.
