Additional learning support

If you have a learning or physical disability we may be able to offer you Additional Learning Support (ALS).  You’ll complete an interview with a member of the ALS team who will help identify any areas where you may need extra help with your studies.

If you had exam access arrangements in the past, you may be entitled to have these again at NHC.  You will need to bring medical evidence or a signed ‘form 8’ from your previous setting and hand it to ALS staff by the end of September.  Further testing may be required to fulfil JCQ awarding body regulations.

If you wish to discuss your support needs, talk to your tutor or contact als@nhc.ac.uk/01462 424343.

If you have learning support input at NHC, it may be possible to complete a full diagnostic assessment for a Disabled Students’ Allowance application.  There is a DSA Access Centre where you can take needs assessments at our Hitchin Campus.
