Additional Learning Support

There are a number of different ways SGS can help students who need additional support to overcome barriers to their learning, whether these barriers are caused by learning difficulties, physical ability or missed educational opportunities. We believe in equal opportunities for all students, so whatever your ability, at SGS we provide the support you need to succeed.

Learning support

Learning support at SGS can help students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger’s syndrome and other learning difficulties. We can provide specialist in-class support with literacy and numeracy, skills development sessions, testing and assessment for exam concessions, and assistive technologies such as text-help and dictation software. We can also provide you with the study skills you need to organise your coursework and plan assignments.

Our support teams have close links with course tutors to ensure you get the help you need to succeed at college.

Disability support

You should tell us if you have any additional support needs due to a physical impairment or mental health issue, so we can make reasonable adjustments and provide extra support.

Our Disability Coordinator works with learners and their families and carers to arrange support and provide specialist equipment.

Ways in which we can help:

  • Liaison with outside agencies
  • Support in the classroom
  • Provide specialist equipment and assistive technology to help you study
  • Support for learners with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties
