Learning Support

If you have identified a learning difficulty and/or a disability, the Learning Support Team will contact you to discuss how to support you appropriately. Identified students who disclose a support need are individually interviewed to assess their needs and the level/type of support or tutoring required.

Financial Support

At Southport College we have a range of financial support packages designed to help meet a range of cost associated with studying including bursaries, travel passes, help with kit and uniforms and childcare support.
