COLLEGE NOTICE (Updated 12/04/21)

Resumption of delivery on College campuses continues to be limited to areas where skills training and assessment needs to take place on site. Unlike schools, Colleges of Further Education have not resumed delivery in full. The College is operating in line with the NI Executive’s Roadmap to Recovery and must wait on the Executive’s decision to trigger the next stage on the roadmap before resuming delivery.

The NI Executive is scheduled to review this later this week and should the decision be taken to trigger Stage 2 of the Roadmap to Recovery, the College will inform students accordingly. Until this takes place, students should continue to follow the direction provided by their course tutors and continue to monitor all communications via email, website and social media.

STUDENT SUPPORT

Learning Resource Centres are open for students unable to access online lessons from home. Student services and limited canteen facilities are also available. Student queries should be directed to Course Co-ordinators. General queries should be emailed to info@src.ac.uk

Learning Support

Learning Support

We are committed to providing a safe, supportive and welcoming learning environment for all our students. Our inclusive policies aim to promote active participation and seamless integration into college life. Our dedicated Learning Support team is here to support all students to become independent learners. The team should be your first point of contact for any disability-related enquiry.

What is learning support?

Learning Support is additional support to assist students who might otherwise be unable to access a programme of study or who, by reason of their learning difficulty or disability, may require specific support beyond that normally provided by the College. This support will assist students with disabilities, learning difficulties or medical conditions to realise their full academic and personal potential. Examples of difficulties includes specific literacy difficulties, Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome, mental health difficulties or mobility difficulties.

How to make a referral

There is no obligation to disclose learning difficulties or a disability, either when applying to the College or throughout time spent studying at the College. However, we would strongly advise you to inform us of your additional learning needs on your online application form, so we can plan in advance to support you. Please note that all information is treated in a sensitive and confidential manner.
