Learning Support

The Learning Support Team provides support to students with a Disability or Additional Support Needs (ASN) such as:

  • Dyslexia, Autism, or mental health issues.
  • Disability or health condition.

Tell us about your support needs as soon as possible including any support you may have received at school or in another educational setting. 

Ways you can do this:-

  • On your application or enrolment form.
  • By contacting us (email/telephone) or pop in to see us on campus.

Once you tell us, we will invite you to an assessment meeting to agree what you need. Remember it is really important that you tell us as early as possible in the application process to give us time to put support in place.   

Depending on your needs, our Learning Support Team staff can offer help with the following: 

  • Linking with subject lecturers to put in class support in place.  
  • Offering the loan of equipment and ICT hardware. 
  • Providing support with assistive technologies. 
  • Supporting you with study skills techniques and strategies. 
  • Offering dyslexia screening. 
  • Putting alternative assessment arrangements in place (we may require evidence for this support). 
  • Arranging a Reader, Scribe or Support Worker in class. 
  • BSL Sign Language Interpreter (SLI).
  • Supporting you with an application for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) for Higher Education students.
