  • Autistic spectrum conditions
  • Dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties
  • Learning difficulties
  • Assistive technologies
  • Social and Emotional needs
  • Deaf and Hard of hearing
  • Exams and One-to-one support
  • Medical conditions
  • Physical disabilities
  • Visual impairments

How we can provide support to you

We have qualified staff who can provide support for you and your tutors throughout your college journey.

All that we ask is that you provide us with evidence of your disability, learning difficulty or medical need. This will help us make sure our service is fair. It also means we have the information we need so we can provide the right support for you.

Students with an Education Health and Care Plan

If you have an Education Health and Care (EHC) Plan, we will work with you to put together a bespoke support plan that will support you in your college journey. This may include strategies for your tutors, exam access arrangements and a range of other support strategies in and out of class, as outlined on your EHC Plan.

Students without an EHCP Plan but with Support Needs

If you don’t have an EHC Plan, but have a diagnosis of SEND or medical needs, then we will put together a bespoke support plan outlining the support you need at college, and if exam access arrangements or assistive technology may benefit you. All other support will be provided by the department you are studying in.
