You will receive a confidential assessment from a qualified, specialist tutor. They can assess your needs, and work with you to decide what kind of support will help you. This may simply be the loan of some specialist equipment or software. It may be some additional teaching, or perhaps one-to-one support in the classroom or around the college.

Some students only need a small amount of support to help them get on track. Others require longer term support to help them reach their full potential.
