Learner Zones
Student Services staff are based in the Learner Zone, Skelmersdale Campus.

This vibrant study and resource area is available to all students on a drop in basis including before and after lessons and in college holidays.

Resources include PCs with internet access, books, journals and multi-media facilities.

Staff are always on hand to assist.

There is even a shop facility offering a range of stationery items at cost prices.

In addition to the IT and research facilities available across the college, our HE students have an area within the Learner Zone with Wi-Fi and specialised resources. We provide an information service to access books as well as printed and online journals, from our own stock and partner institutions and libraries.

Additional Learning Support
Many students may benefit from extra support to help them with their studies. The additional learning support team can help you with any support needs you may have whilst in college. A range of support is available, including support for learners with:
• Dyslexia
• Dyspraxia
• Asperger’s Syndrome
• Physical Disabilities
• ADD/ADHD
• Hearing/Visual Impairment
• Mental Health Concerns
• Learning Difficulties
• Personal Care Needs

ESOL support is available for learners for whom English is not the main language.
Students will complete an initial assessment in Maths and English, usually prior to enrolment. This helps us to identify the right level of course for you. The assessment also identifies if you would benefit from extra support with English and/or Maths during your studies.

Throughout your programme of study, you are encouraged to ask for additional assistance if you feel this would help you. If you need advice on the range of facilities and equipment available, please contact the ALS Co-ordinator on 01695 52492 or speak to your Tutor.
