Supporting learners with disabilities and learning difficulties
Our friendly Learning Support team is here to help learners with a disability or specific learning needs.
Learning support may include:
- Access: We try to make classes and activities accessible to all learners who inform us of access needs; we will do our best to accommodate them through reasonable adjustments.
- Dyslexia support: Learners assessed as dyslexic may be helped to achieve, one to one or sometimes in small groups, with a specialist support tutor.
- In-class support and support workshops: These are made available to learners who require help with learning to achieve and complete courses successfully.
- Additional support is also available in small groups or one to one basis depending on learners’ needs and the resources available.
Assessing and meeting your needs
The WMC Learning Support team will arrange an interview for you to share and discuss your needs. We will confirm with you the support we are able to provide to help you succeed on your course and make the most of your time at the college.
Careers advice & guidance
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 WMC Library or the Learning Support Office.
Our Job Hub is located in the Open Learning Centre with a jobs board available for all learners.
Notifying your needs
You can do this while you enrol or after you join your class. Please inform your teacher or a member of the Learning Support team or email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 020 7255 4752.
Please note – Learning Support is not available on all courses because of the way they are funded. Funds for Learning Support are also limited, therefore all support provided is subject to availability of resources and to the application of our priorities for supporting learners.
