How we can support you

Our aim is to promote independence in learning, life and support towards achieving your aspirations in your career and future years. 

We work together with tutors, Career Coaches, the Wellbeing team and other key members of staff in order to help all students manage their special educational requirements. 

Throughout your programme of study, you are encouraged to ask for additional assistance if you believe that this would benefit you.

Offer For Learners With Special Educational Needs And Disabilities (SEND)

The Children and Families Act 2014 reforms the responsibilities of educational establishments in ensuring that young people with SEND have equal life opportunities as they move into adulthood. 

Additionally, the Preparing for Adulthood Programme (PfA) is funded by the Department for Education as part of the delivery support for SEN and Disability Reforms. Their website is an excellent place to obtain further information.
