Working closely with our Additional Support team, we can help develop a specific support programme tailored to your needs. This may include in or out-of-class support with literacy, numeracy or study skills, as well as other adjustments.
The college is well served with facilities such as ramps, hoists, lifts and specialist toilets and we have dedicated, accessible parking and wheelchair access where appropriate. If wheelchair access isn’t available, we can relocate classes.
If you have dyslexia or other learning difficulties, we can arrange for someone to help with reading and writing, as well as providing helpful equipment which can make your particular difficulty easier to work with.
If you are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing, we understand the possible problems faced by deaf students and provide lots of different support to help you learn effectively and get the most out of college life. We can provide British Sign Language support workers, lip speakers and note takers. Our learning support assistants are all trained in basic deaf awareness and some are British Sign Language qualified. We also have several members of full time staff who are very experienced and are trained in basic deaf awareness.
We also have a range of expertise and adaptive equipment to help students with hearing or visual impairments as well as special software packages available through the college’s computer network.
We know that some students need special arrangements when taking examinations and, in conjunction with examining board guidelines, we can help with examination support.
The Additional Support team is always keen to talk to any student thinking of coming to Chichester College. You are very welcome to come and visit the college before your interview so that you can meet staff and take a look at our facilities.
