SEND support in colleges

If you are a young person with SEND, talk to the support staff at your college who will help you get the support you need. They may assess you to make sure you get the right support.

Disability learning support advisers will arrange support with your studies if you are disabled.

There are many different types of support you can get at college. If you choose a course which takes disabled and non-disabled students, support might include:

  • extra teaching if you have learning difficulties or disabilities
  • flexible timetables
  • study information in large print or Braille
  • an interpreter if you are deaf

If you choose a course which is just for disabled students then the course will be designed to meet a range of needs.
