The College recognises that high quality support is an essential part of learner success. Learners on courses at all levels are entitled to learning support to help develop the skills, behaviour and attitudes to achieve their full potential and succeed in their academic goals. The Learner Services team can help you improve all the skills you need for study such as literacy and numeracy, essay writing, managing your time, understanding complicated tasks as well as boosting your motivation and achievements. 

We encourage learners to tell us about identified or possible support needs when they apply. The information is treated in the strictest confidence and only shared with relevant people. The main point of contact will be a key worker who is there to give ongoing support, advice and encouragement. They will arrange a support plan with you and your tutors and may also liaise with external agencies on your behalf. Your key worker can arrange taster days on selected courses and transition programmes to help you familiarise yourself with College life.
