High Needs Support

Heart of Worcestershire College is committed to ensuing all learners across all curriculum areas and programmes of learning with SEND are supported according to their needs. Our aim is to facilitate learners’ progress and achievement in all areas of development and prepare them for adulthood and their next steps. This could include:

  • Access to additional support through Personal Tutors (PTs) and Personal Learning Coaches (PLCs) or in certain cases a Learning Support Assistant (LSA).

  • We will work with the Local Authority (LA) to support young people make the transition into college as well as towards their next steps.


Could include:

  • Liaison with the Local Authority.

  • Liaison with your current provider.

  • Where possible we will attend annual EHCP reviews.

  • Arrange taster/transition days/visits.

  • Where appropriate liaise with parents/carers and other professionals.
