if you have a learning difficulty go here

If you are have a learning difficulty then go here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

hi my name is Richard im 28, a former student rep for Westminster Kingsway College and i have just finished an access to adult education course, and well, it has been interesting to say the least.

There has been a number of ups and downs but over all this is a good college. one or two issues though:

 The college is TOUGH !! REALLY TOUGH, especially on the A level and Btech students, if you want to study at the college there is no messing around, they operate on a ZERO TOLERANCE of nonsense. "this is not a social club this is an educational establishment"..............you may think im joking.... but they employ people known as student ambassadors (FUN POLICE , more like). if you don't want to learn then don't even bother applying, but if you do then you are in the right place. They have a gym, canteen and other facilitates, the gym is a bit small and the canteen, well don't expect a discount you would be better off eating at the mcds around the corner it alot cheaper. All negatives out the way, I would like to say that one of the college’s most notable features is the assisted learning support or (ALS), this department is comprised of around 25 staff members who contribute to one of the most progressive and comprehensive learning support departments in central London. "i say this because i have been in and out of ALS departments all my life and a swear these are the best" The department has a wide verity of qualified staff that can cater for an even wider range of issues. The learner support offered, can range from a hand in study skills for people who are re-entering education, to care and guidance for students with (ASD) and other learning disabilities. "i think that if i had this support the first time around i would have a nice house by now" They also helped me get assessed and through a little bit of self motivated research i found that the gov is will to give educational centers alot of money towards supporting my study. This is great and i feel that if the ALS department were to grow, it would flourish and could even become a further education assisted college. one thing to note if English is not your first langue there is not much support for you as a student.
