Support for Students with Physical DisabilitiesPhysical Disabilities

We provide support to students who have evidence of a physical disability (including temporary physical disabilities). We will arrange for an assessment of need to take place where we will discuss with you: the
support you had previously; any support requirements you may have now; and how you want your support to work in college.

We will provide a Learning Support Agreement outlining the support that has been agreed.

Examples of support offered:

  • One-to-one tutorial time with specialist tutor
  •  Assistive technology (e.g. adapted keyboards, specialist software)
  •  Learning Assistant support
  • Personal care
  •  Extended library loans and additional allowances
  • Note-takers
  •  Emergency protocols for first aid situations
  •  Exam arrangements (e.g. reader/scribe, separate room, extra time, rest breaks)
  • Advice on personal emergency evacuation plans

In addition we have a dedicated study support area in the main David Hockney Building. As a supported student you can come here to meet your learning support tutors. You can also access the PCs and Macs
that have a range of specialist software.
