At KGV, we welcome applications from students with learning difficulties/disabilities and aim to make your transition from school to College as smooth as possible. We believe in a policy of inclusive learning whereby all students with learning difficulties and disabilities are taught in mainstream classes but are offered additional support, appropriate to their needs and wishes, so that they can participate fully in College activities.
Our Learning Support Team is made up of specialist Learning Support Tutors and Facilitators, who have a positive and proactive working relationship with all staff across the College. Our services include a Learning Support Centre fully equipped with specialist facilities for students including computer software programmes and surface tablets (available on loan. Individual exam arrangements can be made for students, where appropriate dependent on identified need, evidence and application to the exam board.
We aim to be flexible in order to support students with permanent or temporary difficulties or disabilities and we will make every effort to make your time at College happy, enjoyable and successful.
When applying to the College, we encourage students to be completely open about any learning support needs and to supply as much information as possible. This will ensure that that we can respond to your individual needs in the best way.
Learning Support is here to help students with learning difficulties and disabilities realise their individual potential whilst studying at the College and progress on to employment or Higher Education.
