The Additional Learning Support (ALS)Department offers support to any student who might need extra help. Personalised support is available for students with Education, Health and Care Plans, disabled students and those with physical health conditions and other learning needs.
We offer advice, support and guidance with time management, organisational skills and exam preparation as well as some small group and 1:1 support. We also liaise with the Exams Office to make provision for students who have been identified as requiring special access arrangements when taking their exams.
ALS staff are experienced in supporting students with a whole range of additional learning needs including Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dyslexia and hearing or visual impairments.
Where appropriate, we work in close collaboration with external agencies such as IPASS and Occupational Health to ensure that students are fully supported during their time at College and in preparation for their next steps when leaving Wyke, whatever they may be.
All Wyke students are welcome to use the quiet study areas located in Oak 3 and 4, for paired, small group and independent study. A small number of lockers are also available in this area, to students who require one for medical reasons. Lift keys and other specialised resources are also available to students who require them. Students are encouraged to come along and discuss their individual needs.
