We recognise that our students come from different backgrounds and have different abilities and experiences. Some will manage their studies without too much difficulty, whereas others may need a bit of extra help along the way. Below are just some of the ways we can help you.
Support for students with disabilities
We want to ensure that students with disabilities are fully supported in applying to the college and in successfully carrying out their courses. We can help with arrangements for course interviews, details about access and specialist support in the classroom and around college.
Campus buildings at both Windsor and Langley are equipped with full wheelchair access and extra facilities for students with visual and sensory impairment. They are compliant with the Disabilities Discrimination Act (DDA).

Learning and Development Academy
Our Learning and Development Academy team is located throughout our College campuses and delivers high level of personal support, whatever your needs. Specialist staff, including teachers, learning coaches, communicators and personal tutors are highly qualified to help you identify the support you need and to provide that support whilst you're on your course. The Learning and Development Academy offers literacy and numeracy classes for adults who need some extra help with their maths and English. It also delivers Functional Skills in maths, English and ICT to support young people with these essential skills alongside their main courses of study.
Study support is available across the college and can be delivered on an individual basis, in the classroom or in small groups. Our specialist teachers and support staff can help you with:
- research skills, planning and writing assignments
- improving revision and exam techniques
- skills to help you improve spelling, punctuation and grammar
- getting to grips with maths and numbers.
We also have specialist staff who can provide extra support for students with dyslexia or dyspraxia, or those with sensory needs.
In addition to the above, there is also support for:
- those with English as a second language
- students with physical disabilities
- people with mental health difficulties
- those with ASD or Asperger's Syndrome
- people with long term or complex medical conditions.
