Virtual Learning Environment On-line course resources and activities to support your studies, in college and when you are at home.

Learning Zone An open access study session with support from tutors. It takes place at different times throughout the week. Learning Zone Tutors can help you find information, plan your learning and improve the study skills you need to develop for your course.

Dyslexia & Dyspraxia Support Service This includes a specialist assessment, tutor support, software and equipment to assist you and special exam arrangements where necessary.
