How do I get support?

Curriculum Services aims to support you to reach your full potential and achieve your goals. We strive to support you in becoming an independent learner and we adapt the support you need as your learning progresses

  • If you have a Statement / LDA or EHCP - We will already be aware of your support needs before you come to college and will contact you to get the right kind of support to meet your needs. However, if you do not want support you can tell us at any point.
  • Support on application - When you tick any of the boxes disclosing a disability or difficulty, we will discuss what level and type of support would be good for you.
  • Once you are here and to help you achieve your outcomes, whether it’s at college, working off site provision we will ensure your needs are met and review the support at appropriate times with you.

To find out more about the support available to students, please contact our Supported Learning team on (01603) 773 241 or supportedlearning@ccn.ac.uk.
