Support for Students with a disability
Students with physical disabilities or specific
learning difficulties have full access to all parts of the college and to a range
of support services. These include assistive technology and equipment, dyslexia
support, deaf support, and counselling.
Support for students with a disability is funded by the Disabled Students’ Allowance
(DSA). The allowance is funded through the Local Education Authority and students
with a disability should apply for this as soon as possible. Student Services can
provide assistance with completing applications for Disabled Students’ Allowance.
When the LEA receive the application they will organise an assessment with an approved
assessor to determine what support is needed and then inform the student and the
college of what they have agreed to fund.
