Learning Support Assistants

Our Learning Support Assistant Team are there to provide you with in-class support either one to one or as part of a small group. The Team will tailor a support package to your individual needs removing barriers to learning, ensuring access to the curriculum and supporting you to integrate into College life.

The Team build strong relationships with our learners supporting them in improving their functional, social, emotional and behavioural skills. Staff can also support learners with personal care and medical needs where appropriate.

Laura Thomas

Laura loves being at College. Her favourite activities are exercise to music, art, making cakes and tutorial time. During these tutorials she has learnt to create her own timetable for the day by placing blocks representing each activity on a grid. Laura has made lots of new friends on the course and particularly enjoyed her trip on the West Somerset Steam Railway to Minehead.”

Laura is studying Entry to Personal Progression. Sally Newcomb is her Tutor and talks about Laura's time at College above.
