The College Merthyr Tydfil is committed to providing an environment that promotes equality and inclusion for all students capable of succeeding on their chosen course. We welcome students with additional learning needs and endeavour to make every effort to identify and remove barriers to their learning. We refuse to tolerate discriminatory behaviour based on disability and aim to create equal opportunities for all students enabling them to achieve their very best.
The Learning Coaches are available to deliver workshops and provide hints and tips to break down assignments, search for information and meet deadlines. Learning Coaches can help with use of assistive technology and work as part of a whole setting approach to maximise the potential of all learners. Learning coaches are also available for small group or 1:1 support in these areas.
A learner may be able to get extra support during exams – a learner should inform their tutor if they have been given exam access arrangements previously (arrangements awarded at school aren’t automatically given at college and may not be needed at college due to the differences in subjects).
A tutor may feel that a learner needs access arrangements in exams because they are putting reasonable adjustments in place in the class (this is the learner's normal way of working).
Access arrangements might be extra time, a separate room, access to a reader, a prompter, a scribe, use of a computer, or a combination of these or other recommendations. This supports all forms part of our Universal Learning Provision which is available to all learners.
Additional Learning Provision (ALP)
Universal support and high quality-first teaching is likely to meet the needs of all learners at college. However, there will be some learners who will need provision that is different from or additional to that of their peers,, this provision is called Additional Learning Provision (ALP).
Some examples of ALP:
