Learning Support for Further Education Learners

What learning support can everyone access?

Appointments can be made for 1-1 support sessions at your convenience. All students are welcome to this; you may just need some help with study skills, such as organising and researching for your assignments.

What do I do if I have a specific learning difficulty, disability or medical condition?

There are a range of disabilities, learning difficulties or medical conditions that could impact on your learning, including: Dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, attention deficit hyper activity disorder (ADHD), autistic spectrum conditions and medical conditions.

Please make sure you indicate that you have a learning difficulty and/or disability when you complete your application form for your course, you will then receive a self-assessment form in the post. Please return your completed form within 5 days. We encourage early disclosure of your needs so that your support arrangements can be in place ready for the start of your course.

What support is available for me if I do have a learning difficulty?

Most additional support takes place during 1-1 sessions in Learning Support. However, according to your individual needs, we can also offer support for individuals or small groups in your course sessions. Support will be individual to your requirements and will be agreed in consultation with you and your course manager. For example, support could be arranged to assist you with planning assignments, organising your work load, proof reading.

How do I find out more?

Further Education information evenings and Higher Education open days are an excellent way to find out about courses and discuss the support you require.
