Additional Learning Support

Additional Learning Support (ALS) is highly valued at Swindon College and has a significant and positive impact on student success. Around 900 learners receive learning support each year, which has enabled the college to establish a highly experienced and effective Additional Support Department.

Students with learning difficulties and disabilities, as well as those considered vulnerable (i.e. looked-after children, young carers, those with mental ill health and/or medical conditions), benefit from Additional Learning Support at Swindon College.

For general ALS Team enquiries, please phone: (01793) 491591.

I would definitely recommend the college to other people because there is more freedom, you still have to do assignments by a deadline but you can work towards them at your own pace. The on-site gym is well equipped and facilities are good.
