Student Support

Training at the Simulator

Bishop Burton College has often been praised for the level and quality of support that it gives to all of its students.

Specialist support is available for people with diagnosed additional needs, through to less formal support to help students on every level of course with everything from note taking to working out percentages!

We can help you with:

  • Study skills
  • Assignment writing
  • Maths support
  • Spelling, punctuation, grammar

If you know you have a learning or physical disabiliy, or think you may have, don't let that stop you doing the course you want to do. Our staff are very experienced with supporting students who have a variety of needs. During your interview we can discuss your specific requirements.
