Additional Learning Support

It is important to our team that we ensure we provide an inclusive learning environment for all students. We at Moulton College place great emphasis on providing effective support for everybody that needs it.

In particular, if you have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) we would like to meet you and your parents/carers to discuss your learning outcomes. This will result in support that is matched to your support needs. 

What we do

Here in our learning support team, we are trained to support students with a variety of different additional needs. These include: 

  • Dyslexia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Autism/Asperger's
  • Mental Health Difficulties
  • Emotional Behavioural Difficulties
  • Hearing or sight impairments.  We employ our own Communication Support Workers to work with deaf students and a number of our staff are able to use British Sign Language (BSL).
  • Physical Disabilities.
  • and many more.

What areas we can provide extra help with

  • Revision skills
  • Exam support (including exam concessions)
  • English and maths
  • Planning and structuring assignments.
  • Organising workloads

How will I be supported ?

We offer support  1:1, small group as well as in tutor group settings. The support available to you can cover theory and practical sessions. 

Within the Learning Resource Centre we have our Learning Support area where we provide popular drop in support sessions at both lunchtimes and early evenings.

All our college computers have a range of assistive technologies installed on them, to help you to work independently. For example the text can be read to you by using the ‘Text help Read&Write 9’ computer package.

I think I will need extra help when I start my course at Moulton College, what do I do?

You will be invited to meet the Learning Support Team if you have declared a learning difficulty or disability on your application form. This will help us advise you about the best support for your needs.

If you didn’t declare an additional need on the form, don’t worry, you can also enrol for support at any time during the year if you feel like you need some extra help.

I have more questions, how do I contact the Learning Support team?

Please feel free to contact us at anytime to answer any questions you may have or provide you with more information about what support we can offer.
