Callywith College Support for Students on Mainstream Programmes

Callywith College offers a wide range of support options for all students. Our Learning Support Team and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator (SENDCo) can work with a young person prior to their application all the way through to the end of their studies here.

The Learning Support Team and Lecturing Staff aim to provide each student with the skills and support they need to access learning effectively and in turn reach their full potential.

Our support offering includes: full-time in class support where applicable; 1:1 Mathematics, English and Study Skills support opportunities; mentoring; attendance guidance; Student Services; assistive software and much more.

The level of support each student requires varies and we seek to provide a tailored package which reflects the objectives outlined in the paperwork we receive and / or parent / guardian / student / lecturer feedback.

Referral details

It is likely your young person will have already been referred to us by their secondary school and we are planning support for them (i.e.) being in receipt of an EHCP.

Students should be referred to us with copies of their dyslexia screener, diagnosis, statement or ECHP assessment and we may need to ask you for this documentation as evidence of need, if the school is unable to provide it.

We only require referral for in-class support, all other support is offered as required.

Inclusion details

Saint Piran's Flag
How we make our service inclusive

All of the college computers / laptops benefit from Claro Read software to enable students who find reading or processing information a challenge to access the exact same resources as their peers. We also have access to Dragon software for those needing speech to text software. Support is available for students from 09:15 – 16:15 during term-time. All staff are trained in equality and diversity and inclusive practice is inherent across the college.

Staff SEND experience

 

All of our staff are trained and highly experienced in supporting students with and without SEND. Across all the campuses we have staff trained in: Deaf Awareness, Assistive Technologies, Dyslexia, Autism, Manual Handling, First Aid, Safeguarding and Mental Health but to name a few. We most likely have a member of staff specialising in the support your young person will need. In the unlikely event that we do not, we always seek appropriate training / advice before support commences.

Support at key transition points

The SENDCo can attend the young person's final EHCP review at school if invited. Support at Callywith is planned with the young person and transition visits are encouraged. The young person may also be accompanied at interview.
