Additional Learning Support

The Additional Learning Support (ALS) Team offers support and advice if you have particular needs which affect your ability to study, make progress or access the College.

We provide support for learners with SEND (Special Educational Needs and/or Disability) with or without an Education Health & Care Plan (EHCP). Support will be assessed on an individual basis and will vary depending on your assessed needs and EHCP if you have one. We will discuss this with you as part of the application process.

Local Offer

We are committed to giving children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and their parents or carers information about what activities and support is available in the area where you live. We want to make it easier to find out what you need to know when you need to know it, showing you the nearest and most suitable services and encouraging you to give feedback, raise concerns or make a comment or complaint.
