Disabilities & Learning Differences
Your needs will be assessed prior to joining us and any necessary adjustments will be put in place for your timetable of study.
If you have physical, sensory or other support needs, please contact our Special Needs Co-ordinator who will be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
The Inspiration Room
We have a specially-designed ‘Inspiration Room’, which is staffed by members of the learning assistant team.
This pleasant facility is available for students on the autistic spectrum and for other vulnerable students who might benefit from a quiet space to work and study.
Skills Development & Learning Assistants
We offer advice and support for students who might require additional help with their studies. This may include help with study skills such as time management, organisation skills, exam revision technique, coursework support or literacy.
Specialist tutors can also offer assistance across the full range of curriculum areas. The one-to-one support is friendly and confidential. In some cases, assistive technology can be provided to support specific needs; the team will also assess for special exam arrangements.
The Learning Assistant team at Brock are fully trained professionals. There is learning assistant support on courses at Foundation Level and Level two. In a small number of cases, individuals can be allocated one-to-one learning support if there is a specific need (for example, physical mobility, visual impairment).
