Our friendly Learning Support team is committed to supporting all learners in a variety of ways with particular support for learners with disabilities or learning difficulties. Learner Services will advise you about availability of learning or other support services and college facilities. They will refer you to and make appointments for you with our Learning Support team or other specialist services.
We understand that not all learners have access to the equipment required for online learning. We have in a number of Chromebook computers and data dongles to boost internet access for our students to loan* during the pandemic.
If you are currently studying a course with us and are being held back by the lack of equipment or internet access please talk to your tutor.
If you would like to enrol on an online course but are worried you don’t have a computer or access to the internet, please contact our Learner Services team via the live chat function, e-mail or phone and they will be happy to help you.
* Please note that the loan of equipment is strictly at the discretion of the College and is mainly for those on a qualification course.
Learners can receive guidance and help with job searching, completing application forms, improving CVs and receive tips about essential interview skills as well as advice regarding progression opportunities.
Appointments with a National Careers Service adviser can be booked in the Library or the Learning Support Office.
Our Job Hub is located in the Learning Centre with a jobs board available for all learners.
