Description

The College actively promotes equality of opportunity, regardless of such characteristics as gender, age, ethnic group, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability and socio-economic background. Diversity is valued and mutual respect is encouraged and expected in all relationships.

A pamphlet entitled ‘Learning Support at QE’ is produced and updated each year. It gives information about what the College can offer to anyone with a disability which interferes with their ability to carry out normal day to day activities. You can get a copy of this by telephoning the College, calling at Reception or asking the liaison tutor who interviews you. If you have a disability, please ensure that we know what you need so that we can make all reasonable adjustments to help you succeed.

Specific additional learning support is available at the College and assistance is arranged to complement the main learning programme of students. Please inform the liaison tutor when you are interviewed if you think you need this type of support. In addition, please describe any difficulties you have experienced in the relevant section of the application form. For further information see the SEND ‘Local Offer’ on the College website.
Once at College, Extension Studies are incorporated into many students programmes to enable them to maximise their success and fulfil their potential. This comprises 2 hours of supported study each week and can result in an additional Level 3 qualification in ‘Improving Own Learning & Performance.’
