Learning and Study Support
Learning and Study Support is available to all, enabling students to complete their courses successfully. All students will take part in an initial screening process and will complete a learning support questionnaire. This is to help us to identify everybody who might benefit from extra support. Further in-depth assessment may be carried out, if necessary, to identify exact needs. Students are encouraged to make use of the support offered and to talk to us about any concerns they may have.
A Variety of support is offered including:
• Drop-in learning support
, available to anyone who would like some help with their work
• Individual support
, both long and short term depending on need
• Assessment for exam adjustments,
e.g. extra time, reader, computer, scribe, etc
• Specialist support for a wide range of needs and disabilities
, such as Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD/ADHD and mental health needs
