SUPPORT WITH WORK

Academic Support

Our team is available to help you with any additional support you may need for your studies whilst at college. They can help you develop your skills and confidence with reading, writing, spelling, numeracy, IT, study skills, exam revision, memory strategies, etc.

Support workers can work with you on a one to one basis, in small groups or in-class according to your need. Equipment and assistive materials can be provided for students with Specific Learning Difficulties (SLD), e.g. Dyslexia. If you think you may have Dyslexia a diagnostic screening can be arranged for you. If you have a support need you may be entitled to additional assessment arrangements such as extra time, the provision of a reader/scribe or the use of a computer. If you want to discuss your study needs then call in to the Advice centre and an appointment can be made with a support worker to discuss how we can help you.
ADVICE AND INFORMATION

Course/Career/General Information

It is important that you choose the right course as it may impact on the career options open to you at a later stage. With so many subject choices and different attendance options, getting some impartial advice at an early stage is often worthwhile.

Our support workers are here to help you make that right choice and will take into account your personal circumstances as well as career ambitions. Teaching staff and the Learner Services team will aim to provide you with up-to-date information on potential career paths and Higher Education study opportunities throughout your time in college. Help to complete your UCAS forms and personal statement is also available through the Advice centre. We work alongside Skills Development Scotland who offers independent career advice; so if you require an appointment please ask at the front desk in the Advice centre and we will arrange this for you. We have a Transition Officer who works between the college and local universities who can assist you with any aspect of moving on to University that you may like more information on or be worried about. The Advice Centres hold information on a range of topics that you may find helpful so please come in and see us.

Staff can also help you with your UCAS application, SAAS applications and any difficulties you may encounter, applying for Disabled Students Allowance.
