Support for Learners
The College will aim to meet the learning needs of students wherever possible.
|The Learning Support department (‘Number 58’) provides a service for any student wanting help or advice in their studies, particularly:
|Support for Students with Higher Level Needs
If a student has had higher level support at school, including any of the following:
|College Counselling Service We have a number of trained counsellors at College, which are bookable via Senior Tutors.|
|Exam Access Arrangements We can assess learners for Exam Access Arrangements. It is important that if a student has access arrangements at their previous school they should make contact with the Learning Support Department as soon as possible. This is because there are exam board deadlines and failure to apply may mean that arrangements cannot be made for future exams.|
|Services of a Teacher of the Deaf, BSL Communicator and Note Taker Bought in as needed.|
|Providing Specialist Software/Resources We can provide some specialist software and can bid for additional funding for software and resources should a learner require something specific.|
This list is not definitive! Please get in touch with us in the Learning Support Department for further information or to ask a question. If you have a Learning Support need, we encourage you to get in touch with the Learning Support Department as soon as possible.
