Additional and Special Educational Needs

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

Our exciting courses, highly specialist staff and innovative practice ensures all learners have the best possible chance to be successful.

We ensure that support addresses the aspirations of all learners by tailoring support and learning programmes to meet their individual needs. An excellent and efficient Initial Needs Assessment (INA) procedure is in place to ensure learners' individual support needs are quickly established and the correct type and level of support is put into place as soon as an additional need is identified through our effective and responsive process.

Learning Support staff work closely with schools, specialist providers and external organisations, and attend termly, and / or annual reviews. This is to discuss progression routes, transition programmes and individual support needs, to ensure information is gathered prior to learners enrolling at Weston College.

We have a dedicated, highly qualified and experienced support team comprising of; Support Workers, Specialist Support Instructors, Specialist Tutors, Advanced Practitioners and Diagnostic Assessors. Our staff work collaboratively with cross-College teams in efficiently assessing individual needs as well as organising and implementing a wide range of support programmes, each tailored to the learner.
