Study Support at Priestley is based on the ground floor of the Learning Resource Centre. Our friendly and experienced team includes:
• Learning Support Manager
• Learning Support Tutor
• Learning Support Assistants
We can provide advice, guidance and support at any point during your time at College, to aid you in your studies and to help you to achieve success.
Study support is flexible, tailored to your needs, and is aimed at all levels. We can help you with structuring your assignments, getting your ideas down on paper, improving your spelling, helping you to get organised, managing your deadlines and workload, revision and exam techniques or in any other area you would like support. Sessions can be weekly, a short course of sessions, a single session, or drop in when needed, according to which you would prefer.
If you have a disability or learning difficulty such as dyslexia, we recommend that you contact us early to allow us to fully discuss your needs with you. We are experienced in supporting students with a wide range of difficulties and disabilities.
We have specialist members of staff with qualifications and expertise in dyslexia and disability, and can give regular one-to-one sessions to support your studies and develop your skills, depending on your needs. We also provide in-class support where required.
Should you need exam concessions, we can assess your needs and organise arrangements such as extra time, use of a word processor, scribe or a separate room. If you already have a report from an Educational Psychologist or Specialist Teacher, or evidence of exam concessions at school, we can organise the recommended arrangements once we have a copy.
If English is your second language, we can offer regular one-to-one sessions and ESOL workshops to support you in your studies and to improve your English.
