Additional Learning Support (ALS)

We have a dedicated team of Learner Support staff who provide a highly effective support network across the college. We aim to provide high quality support to students with learning difficulties and disabilities to assist in the delivery of a quality learning experience.

You are usually referred by your tutor after you have had an initial assessment but you can ask for help yourself at any point from applying to the College onwards.

Curriculum Leaders as well as your Progression Coach will act as a link person for ALS and will take responsibility for ensuring your requests are dealt with professionally and efficiently.

For confidential help and advice, please call 0191 518 8284 or 0191 518 5513.
