Additional Learning Support

Additional Learning Support (ALS) is available to help and support you to succeed on your chosen course.

The ALS team are experienced in working with students with a range of learning difficulties and disabilities. The type of support will be based on your individual needs and we are happy to discuss this in advance to support your transition to College.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Kate Flavell, SEND Team Leader Transition on 0161 280 8492 or email

How to access support

Students can ask for support at any time. We have a team of learning support tutors and support workers who will talk to you about your needs and support you in whichever way is best for you.
