Woking College aims to ensure equality of opportunity and a wide and varied curriculum for each student in order that every student can become an effective learner, who is able to achieve their maximum potential.    

We appreciate that every student is unique.  Consequently, there are differences in the ways in which they learn and the level of support that each individual needs.    

We aim to provide holistic, personalised and fully integrated support for all students according to their needs and circumstances.  In the first few weeks after enrolment, using diagnostic screening, as well as information provided from home, Learning Support will create an agreed plan to address any particular needs.  Many students come to the College for a fresh start and so we apply a flexible approach to enable them to grow in both confidence and independence, thereby preparing them for greater success and future progression opportunities.    

A dedicated Learning Support area is available throughout the week, where one-to-one and small group lessons take place and specialist staff in the fields of literacy, numeracy and study skills can provide assistance.  Depending on learning needs and preferences, some in-class support is also available, as well as specific workshops for building confidence, social skills and mentoring.
