During the continuing Covid-19 pandemic you may be anxious or worried or have questions about starting College in the new academic year.
Although we cannot provide you with detailed information about your first weeks with us at this time, you can be reassured that our Additional Learning Support team will be prepared to welcome you and support you when you start and we are planning for your arrival.
Prior to the lockdown, we have already seen a great many students for a discussion about their needs and we are also aware of all those who have applied and are still waiting to speak to us and we will contact you as soon as we can.
If you have not made your application yet, I would encourage you to provide us with as much detail as you can about your needs when you receive the Learning Support questionnaire and return this to the Admissions department as quickly as possible.
If you have any specific questions regarding learning support you can also contact the Learning Support Co-ordinator by email email@example.com .
We are working hard to ensure we can offer our new students a successful transition and we are looking forward to being able to meet you and welcome you to the college.
The Centre can help learners from any course and at all levels to achieve their potential. The Centre offers access to experienced, specialist tutors who, in addition to offering support with coursework, can help students to develop essential skills in English and maths. Our specialist tutors enable learners to develop self-supporting strategies that can be carried forward to future employment or further study. A Skills Development Centre exists on both campuses.
The College provides tailored support to meet the needs of the individual through course tutors, specialist tutors, learning support assistants, the use of adaptive technology and assessment for access arrangements. If you have a disability or learning difficulty, please advise us at interview and by ticking the appropriate box on your application form. We will send you a confidential questionnaire for you to complete and return and we may then contact you to offer you an opportunity for further discussion about your support needs.
