Addi­tion­al Learn­ing Support

SLDD at Not­ting­ham Col­lege is an inclu­sive, sup­port­ive and inno­v­a­tive learn­ing com­mu­ni­ty serv­ing the needs of all young peo­ple with a learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ty and/​or disability. 

We aim to sup­port you to max­imise your poten­tial and reach your learn­ing goals and devel­op skills towards inde­pen­dence and employability. 

Per­son­alised sup­port is avail­able on all col­lege sites and could be in the class­room, out­side of the class­room, dur­ing exams, equip­ment, mod­i­fi­ca­tions and/​or in and around the wider col­lege envi­ron­ment. This sup­port aims to enable you to access all the oppor­tu­ni­ties col­lege has to offer and help you have the most pos­i­tive expe­ri­ence whilst study­ing at Not­ting­ham Col­lege. What­ev­er learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ty and/​or dis­abil­i­ty you may have, we offer sup­port to match your indi­vid­ual needs. 

Sup­port Spe­cial­ists meet stu­dents, com­plete rel­e­vant paper­work, cre­ate sup­port plans and deliv­er spe­cial­ist 1:1, and small group. All spe­cial­ists are expe­ri­enced and qual­i­fied who have a spe­cif­ic pro­fes­sion­al inter­est in one or more spe­cif­ic learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties and/​or disabilities. 

Learn­ing Sup­port Assis­tants (LSAs) work along­side cur­ricu­lum tutors in the class­room. Tutors and LSAs have reg­u­lar talks to dis­cuss the best way to sup­port stu­dents. All LSAs are expe­ri­enced, hold rel­e­vant qual­i­fi­ca­tions and have a spe­cif­ic pro­fes­sion­al inter­est in one or more spe­cif­ic learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties and/​or disabilities.
