Additional learning support

At West Notts we offer learning support to students with disabilities and/or learning difficulties. The team offers a wide range of services to enable students to access all opportunities at college.

About our ALS teams

The teams work closely with students, schools, outside agencies and teachers to provide an individual support package. Support is regularly reviewed and the aim, where possible, is to guide the learner towards independence.

The service has a growing reputation and the team is delighted to link and work with key organisations such as Nottinghamshire Personality Disorder Development Network, NORSACA, Nottinghamshire Asperger’s Team, Early Intervention in Psychosis Team, RNIB, Physical disability Support Service, Speech and Language Therapy Team, as well as the Probation Service.
