How to get help
Enrolling at Bradford College
The College welcomes applications from anyone, regardless of race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age.
Make sure you fill out the ‘Support Required’ section on your application form if you have a learning difficulty, disability, medical need or other learning need that you need to make us aware of.
We will get in touch when we receive your application with details of the referral process.
Feel free to contact us if you need to discuss any aspect of the service and the support we can offer you at college.
If you are enrolled on a course and want to refer yourself to the SEND & Additional Learning Support department, you will need to complete a referral form and provide with it a copy of any associated evidence of your support needs. You can also ask one of your class tutors to help you complete the referral process.
To complete a referral or contact us for advice please use the following methods:
- Visit our SEND & ALS helpdesk on level three of The David Hockney Building
- Email us email@example.com
- Call us 01274 08 8344
Please note: If you indicated support needs during the enrolment process you will have received information on how to refer yourself.
If you want, your tutor can contact us for you. We will then contact you directly – we don’t take any action unless we have talked to you and have your agreement.
Or you or your tutor can fill in a Referral Form and email it to us. The appropriate member of staff will then contact you.
You need to tell us in advance about any learning support needs you have, so we can plan and make sure you have a supportive learning environment.
We will offer you the same support as to any other student in your situation, in line with UK regulations and legislation.
