Starting your time at the College

Learner needs are met following an assessment to identify the best method of support. There will be an induction programme to give information about the facilities and resources of the College, and the support team will keep in touch while you are at the College through termly reviews.

Please let us know your needs when you make your application to the College. Further support can be arranged once you have started.
