Woking College is renowned for its outstanding Learning Support for all our students. The Learning Support department is based in the new Behavioural Science teaching block and has chill out zones and a welcome hub in the Main Building for those that want a quiet, smaller space.

Our outstanding Learning Support team is available throughout the College day offering support, guidance and a friendly and helpful ear no matter what your questions or queries may be.

All students are screened during our comprehensive induction process to identify any additional learning needs and where applicable a Learning Support plan can be put in place which may vary from small group lessons to in class support as well as specific workshops to help with revision and study skills, confidence building and social skills.

Other helpful initiatives and programmes include

Learning Support Assistants

Our LSAs work closely with students supporting them in class and offering one to one and small group support sessions.

Independent Learning Mentors

Independent Learning Mentors are available for students who need a little extra help of adjusting to the more independent mode of study College life requires. ILMs provide one to one support on a six-week programme, offering guidance tailored to individual needs.

Learning Skills Enrichment

Our Learning Skills Enrichment programme supports students across College to increase their independent learning skills and improve their progress across all subjects. Topics explored include the benefits of using feedback and resources, organisational and time management skills and revision techniques.

Subject Workshops

Subject specialist workshops are offered in all departments to help with academic progress, revision and provide extra help if you get stuck. These can be provided in a one to one or group setting.

Easter Revision

Most subjects offer revision workshops through the Easter break to support students in their preparation for summer exams.

SEND Special Educational Needs and Disability

The College will co-operate with the local authority to identify and meet the needs of young people with EHCOs, recognising its duties to the SEND Code of Practice
