Additional Support

We welcome students with additional support needs and will try to make the transition from school to college as smooth as possible. Our friendly, expert Inclusive Learning Team work closely with students to ensure their learning needs are met.

The College’s highly effective support for students with additional support needs is a key strength and students make excellent progress while they are with us. Support for students can take a variety of forms, including literacy workshops, individual or group support for dyslexia and other specific learning differences, skills plus+ sessions, mentoring, in class learning support assistants, and special arrangements for exams.

A Counselling Service is also available. Offering specialist support for students on managing their mental health. We are able to provide a range of specialist facilities and equipment including laptops, dictaphones and specialist software, through to adjustable height desks and a Braille facility.

We also have close links with the Oldham SEN Advisory and Teaching Service, who provide valuable support and specialist advice. If you do have any special learning requirements, please fill out the relevant sections of the application form or contact the College before you start. We also liaise directly with your school, so all of your needs can be met.

Copies of College publications are available in alternative formats, such as audio, large print and braille on request.
