WE'RE HERE TO HELP

The college supports the rights of students with learning differences and/or disabilities to attend their ​chosen ​place of learning and receive support as appropriate and feasible.

Information on the support available, advice on specialist equipment and how to access it, access to special arrangements for assessments and other individual support and guidance is available from each campus.

In the first instance, please contact our admissions team on 0800 28 18 42, or email admissions@accesstomusic.ac.uk

ASSESSING LEARNING SUPPORT

Each college campus has a Learning Support Tutor who leads on the management and monitoring of academic and pastoral support needs.

These tutors will provide guidance before you start and during your induction in order to:

  • identify skills;
  • assess ​support ​needs;
  • ensure that the college is the most appropriate place for your particular support needs, as well as your interests and chosen career path.

 

We​ ​will endeavour to provide appropriate support for you,​ with needs 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 your Local Authority. This will be based on any existing documentation, such as an Educational Health Care Plan or statement.

MATHS & ENGLISH

See the separate section for more information on how we can help you with these subjects.

TUTORIALS & ILP

Once you are on the course, you will have a series of one-to-one tutorials which will support your progress, feeding into an Individual Learning Plan (ILP).

Midway through you will have a key Progress Tutorial and at the end you will attend a Next Steps Meeting to discuss your progression.
