Special Educational Needs (SEND)
Some learners with a learning difficulty or disability may require extra support to access their chosen course successfully.
This is called Additional Learning Support (ALS). In some cases a learner requiring ALS will have had a Statement of Educational Needs when they were at school and a Section 139a or an Education Health and Care Plan.
Learners should declare this on their application form; this will trigger an assessment of their support needs with an Assessment Officer.
If support needs are agreed, learners may receive some or all of the following types of support depending upon what is identified at assessment:
- In class support
- 1:1 support out of class
- Dyslexia support
- Mobility assistance
- Personal care assistance
- Communication support and use of access technology
- Adaptation of materials
- Loan of specialist equipment
The College has a Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). If you have any further questions about support for your child, please contact Sam Rees on: 01522 876225 or send her an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We offer support if you have a learning difficulty, disability, medical condition or a mental health difficulty including; Hearing and Visual Impairments, Mental Health problems, Specific Learning Difficulties related to Dyslexia, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Physical Disability, Aspergers Syndrome and Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (SEBD).
I had special arrangements for exams I took at school; will they still be available to me at college?
If you have had special exam arrangements in the past, or think you may need them for exams you are taking as part of your course at college, it is your responsibility to let us know the date of your exams and provide suitable evidence.
Special exam arrangements might be:
- Extra time
- A reader
- A scribe
- Separate or individual invigilation
- Rest breaks
- Use of a bilingual dictionary
Applications for special arrangements must be on a Special Exam Arrangements Form (available from Student Services) and accompanied by appropriate evidence that is less than two years old.
College will pass applications to the examination board, but the decision on whether or not the applicant will be allowed the concession rests solely with the individual exam boards.
If your child has a SEN you may wish to find out more about the services and support that you might benefit from, not just what the College provides, but also what the local authority is doing to ensure that schools and colleges are compliant with the SEND reforms.Visit the Lincolnshire County Council Website.

Some questions you may have; if you can't find what you are looking for, please contact us.
Is there car parking available at College?
There is no car parking available for learners on college sites, however there are alternate public car parks available close by.
On production of a Blue Badge learners with a mobility disability may apply to Student Services for a car parking pass. The car parking pass is solely for the use of that learner and permits them to park in any of the College’s disabled parking spaces that are vacant.
I was bullied at school, what support is available to me when I come to College?
Lincoln College aims to be a pleasant place for staff and students. This can’t happen if bullying or harassment takes place. If you think there is a problem with bullying or harassment, there is a Harassment Code of Practice and Procedure to follow.
Anyone who feels they are being bullied or harassed or has witnessed bullying or harassment can talk to any Named Person by contacting Student Service.
Other support services are available to all learners who are currently enrolled on a course including counselling and chaplaincy.
