At Banbury and Bicester College, we offer a wide range of study support to help students who may face barriers to learning reach their full potential.
- Additional support mentors work in the classroom, focusing on students who have a barrier to learning. They also work with individual learners outside the classroom in small study groups and 1:1s.
- Mainstream Learning Support Assistants work with learners, mainly in the classroom.
Specialist teachers are responsible for:
- Dyslexia assessments and exam arrangements.
- Skills building and study support sessions for small groups or 1:1s.
- Drop in sessions, when a learner can call in if they need support and someone is available to help.
How can we help you?
- Skills building for learners with conditions such as: Dyslexia, Asperger’s, language issues, anxiety - help with planning, developing reading skills, learning vocabulary, proofreading, note taking and more
- Breaking down an assignment task into manageable chunks
- Finding a suitable method for learners so they can organise their ideas for assignments and essays
- Helping students prioritise their research and organise it
- Helping a learner plug gaps in their education, which are affecting their studies
- Helping with revision strategies and also strategies for overcoming learning barriers in maths
- Using helpful technology
- Helping students organise work and learn time management skills
Our aim is to help students develop independence and achieve their potential. We may use assignments or essays to do this, and it will be the students' responsibility to complete these.
If support is mandatory, tutors and learners will discuss their specific needs, first with each other and then with the Study Support Coordinator. This will help us put an appropriate programme in place.
