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.
