The college also has an extensive network of contacts with outside agencies. The Learning Support Team will treat you as an individual and will help to identify what support and/or equipment may be appropriate to your individual needs. Individual support recommendations and actions will be agreed to make your life at Carmel as accessible and independent as possible. This could include for example:
The Learning Support Team have experience of working with students with a wide range of learning difficulties / disabilities eg dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, hearing and visual impairment and Aspergers Syndrome. Students who have a medical condition which may affect their studies should also inform the Learning Support department.
The Learning Support Team will ensure that your tutors are aware of your individual support needs and there are opportunities to review your progress on a regular basis. This information will be treated confidentially and only shared with those who need to know.
