We offer support on all delivery sites – in-class, outside of the classroom, with exams and assessments and in the wider environment. This support is to enable you to access all available opportunities and that you enjoy yourself whilst studying at NGTC.
We work in partnership with teaching staff, other internal services and external organisations to provide a person-centred approach. The support we offer is regularly reviewed and our aim, where possible, is to guide you towards independence.
What support will I receive?
If you have an Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP), ALS will produce a bespoke support plan outlining the support that you while with NGTC, subject to commissioning. This may include:
- in class support (prompts, readers and scribe)
- mobility support
- note taking
- Exam access arrangements
If you don’t have an EHCP but still have SEN then ALS will produce a bespoke support plan outlining the support you need at NGTC. If NGTC are unable to provide you with the correct level of additional learning support (ALS) required, we will ensure to signpost you to another provider who can support you.
