Every Access centre has a Learning Support Tutor who leads on the management and monitoring of academic and pastoral support needs.
We provide guidance pre-entry and during induction in order to:
- identify skills;
- assess support needs;
- ensure that Access is the most appropriate place for a learner’s interests and chosen career path, as well as for their particular support needs.
We will endeavour to provide appropriate support for a learner with needs being assessed on an individual basis.
The type of support we can offer may include:
- in-class/group academic support for vocational subjects and English and maths;
- one-to-one individual support for higher-needs learners.
We can create individual support packages for higher-needs learners in consultation with their Local Authority. This will be based on any existing documentation (such as an Educational Health Care Plan or statement).
