All full-time students are appointed a personal tutor. They will form a close relationship with you, making sure you are matched with the most appropriate course, are motivated, supported and become an independent learner. The tutor liaises with your parents, writes reports and can refer you to other experts within the College where necessary.
Additional Learning Support
A dedicated team works across the College to support and advise students with additional needs. Students with physical disabilities, specific learning difficulties, emotional difficulties, medical problems or mental health difficulties have access to a range of support mechanisms. For further information visit the Additional Learning Support page.
We seek to ensure all our campuses are accessible to all students. Corridors are wide and classes are generally timetabled within one building to minimise the need for travel and the risk of getting wet. Most of our buildings have automatic doors and lifts and there are reserved drop-off and parking bays. Internal fire doors are held open magnetically and there are fire refuge areas for those who cannot manage staircases. The Restaurants have flexible seating to allow for wheelchair users.
There are three Functional Skills; English, maths and ICT, that underpin all learning. They are included in full-time programmes of study and are a mandatory part of vocational courses. Adult students who do not already have a GCSE in Maths or English are also entitled to access this support and classes.
Further Functional Skills support is available if required, on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. To find out more call 01278 441316 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
