Additional Learning Support (ALS Team)

We have a dedicated team of professionals who support students with any disability or learning support needs. Our team is committed to ensuring that every student has the support and resources to achieve their full potential. Whether you have a special educational need or a disability, the ALS team will be there for you every step of the way, providing tailored support to help you get the most out of learning.

The ALS Study Zone

The ALS Study Zone is a multi-functional resource that you can access while at College. It can provide you with a quiet place to study within a more focused environment. The ALS Study Zone is staffed by a member of the Additional Learning Support Team who will be able to arrange any of the following:

  • One-to-one or small group weekly support sessions
  • Assignment guidance and exam revision techniques
  • Informal support on a daily basis
  • Personal development, mentoring and coaching for success
  • Laptop access

Disability Support

If you have a physical disability, visual impairment or hearing impairment, we will do our best to provide you with all the support, equipment, access and learning resources you might need throughout your time at College. This support is confidential and information provided will only be shared with the appropriate professionals to meet your individual needs.

Learning Support

If you have a learning difficulty or disability, for example, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia or Asperger Syndrome, we have specialist teams of staff who will be able to support you throughout your time at College. Support can range from one-to-one support inside and outside of the classroom, workshops or just arranging extra time in examinations. If you have learning support needs, please mention this on your application to College, or during your interview.

Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

If you have an Education Health and Care Plan, and need more comprehensive support, we can work with you, your current school, and the Local Authority to ensure that you get the best possible support when you come to College. Arrangements can be made for transition visits to help with the move from school to College, and we are happy to come out to school to see what works best for you.
