Once their needs have been identified during the application process, at enrolment, or by subsequent notification to the CollegeCollege, individual students are well supported by appropriate staff. The CollegeCollege has enlisted a specialist agency that collaborates with the Student Support unit to support learners with special educational needs, including identifying their needs, arranging assessments, and providing advice on a wide range of personal and academic issues.

The delivery of an exciting and informative induction program for all new students is central to the quality of the student experience at the CollegeCollege. In preparation for their studies, the induction program provides students with opportunities to enhance the necessary academic and professional skills that they need to deploy as they progress through their courses. Study Skills sessions are delivered for eight weeks of the semester. These sessions underpin the necessary skills to gain an academic qualification at a higher educational level. The study skills module focuses on developing skills such as academic writing and oral presentation, referring skills, and time management. It also emphasizes self-reflection techniques, so that learners can gain a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses and be able to utilize these on other courses of study. The comprehensive Induction and Study Skills program enhances students’ academic capability and positively impact students’ progression, retention, and achievement. We work with community groups and employers to raise awareness of the benefits of Higher Education to individuals, industry, and the local economy.
