Service description:
Supported learning programmes are for students who are identified as having a special educational need and/or disability and are working at entry level.

Students on a supported learning programme will have a Learning Disability Assessment (LDA), Statement of Special Educational Need or an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan. Supported learning programmes have smaller group sizes. These programmes are on offer at four of our six colleges: Leamington, Rugby, Moreton Morrell and Pershore.

Some students on the supported learning programmes may have significant and high levels of need and their learning and support may be provided until they are aged 24, with additional funding from their local authority. Normally, the local authority will let the college know which students need a higher level of support. College staff work closely with schools and the local authority and wherever possible will visit students in their school setting. The support requirement will be discussed prior to enrolment.

We have a team of experienced Student Support Assistants who provide in class support over and above that which can be provided by the classroom lecturer.

The level of support provided depends upon individual needs. We will be guided by the recommendations in the transition plan and from attendance at Discovery Days at college.

Applicants can tell staff what kind of help they feel they need in class. Staff will listen and plan support with each individual.
