Learning support

The learning support team provides study skills support to WAES learners and specialist support to students with disabilities and specific learning difficulties.



Support workshops

Learning support runs a variety of workshops throughout the year for WAES learners with literacy and numeracy difficulties and students needing to develop their study skills. Please contact learner support for more details.

Drop-in sessions

If you need help with your course work or projects, drop-in sessions are also available at the Learning Centres at Lisson Grove, Pimlico and Amberley Road. You do not need to make an appointment - just bring your work along and a tutor will help you. Drop-in times are advertised in the Learning Centres. Please contact Learning support for more details.
