My son/daughter has applied for a place at college but he/she has a learning difficulty/disability, what support is available?
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).

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

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:

- 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.
