Learning Support

If you have any additional needs then there are a number of ways in which we can help you to successfully complete your course.

We can provide:

  • Class/workshop support
  • One-to-one personal tuition
  • Access to Learning Mentors
  • Provision of specialist equipment for individuals based on learning needs
  • Specialist tuition and equipment for students who have learning differences or disabilities
  • Access to specialist software e.g. text to speech and Inspiration (mind mapping)
  • Support with applications for Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) for Higher Education students
  • Free full assessments for dyslexia for Furness College students (based on initial screening results)
  • Exam considerations (subject to exam board approval)

Please ensure you let us know about your support needs so we can invite you to a confidential interview to discuss your personal support package.
