Support For Learners
Support for your Success
At South Thames College we are committed to removing as many barriers to access and learning as possible. Our aim is to provide you with the right support to produce results that are a true reflection of your abilities.
We provide support to more than 1,000 students, many of whom have a disability or learning difficulty. In order for us to plan to meet your support requirements, we encourage students to disclose this information to us as early as possible.

“I’ve had support for my learning difficulty and mental health problems over the last 3 years. I was nervous when I first started as I came from a special school but it was easy to find out how to get support. My lecturer explained on my first day, I filled in a form and there was a really quick response. I had my support all set up within 2 weeks. The support I get helps me to get my work done, and to understand work more fully. I have more confidence now and am happy to work alongside al the other students. The Support staff here are fantastic, there’s never been a problem they can’t help me with, I’m really thankful.”Read more…
