Disability services and learning support

We can help if you need support because of a learning difficulty, disability, illness or other need.

We also want to help you plan for life after College.

Our skilled staff can help you with conditions including:

  • deaf and hard of hearing
  • visual impairments
  • learning difficulties
  • dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties
  • autistic spectrum conditions
  • physical disabilities
  • medical conditions
  • social and emotional needs

How to get help

Before you start

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.

We will get in touch when we receive your application to assess your support needs.

Feel free to call us to find out what’s on offer or talk about your needs.   

Current students

Get in touch with the Disability Services and Learning Support Team. We will arrange a time when you can talk to a specialist member of staff in confidence.

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.

International students

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.
