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 Learning 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.

I have gone from not feeling successful in life, to feeling feel like I can take over the world. I’m going to take this moment and shape it into something special. If something is not for you or you don’t have the passion for it, don’t waste your potential or time and make that change.
