Learning Support

We understand that learning or gaining access to learning environments, due to a disability or mental health issues, can make education seem a daunting and unattainable goal – but we are here to support you.

We strongly believe that everyone should have access to adult education regardless of disability and that’s why we go to great lengths to ensure that we offer assistance and accessibility to anyone with a learning or physical disability.

Learning Support Assistants 

We have a team of Learning Support Assistants who are there to help you overcome physical or mental health barriers so that you can reap the rewards of further education.

Information, advice and guidance

If you are taking a qualification, course or an apprenticeship with us, we offer information, advice and guidance about further education, career options or other next steps. Speak to your tutor or contact us for more information.


You could be eligible for travel subsidies, specialist equipment to help you learn, course funding, help with childcare costs and more. Plus, a lot of our courses are free if you meet certain criteria, our friendly team can help you find out more.
