How do we provide this learning support?

This process ensures that you will receive the help that you need at college from day one. In turn, helping you to achieve your goals and thrive at college.

This support plan will be reviewed regularly, and you are free to discuss or agree on any changes to make sure it benefits you throughout your studies.
