When you apply to the college we will meet with you to discuss your learning needs and if you require specialist support our Student Support Team will ensure you get dedicated help.

We will provide help and support in a number of areas, including:

  • Dyslexia or dyscalculia
  • ADD/ADHD

  • Hearing or a visual impairment

We understand some of our learners will need financial help during their studies and depending on their situation we have a 16–19 bursary scheme in place that can help with things like travel expenses, equipment, trip or even childcare costs through the Care to Learn scheme. More information about the Care to Learn scheme is available here.

For those aged over 19 we could be able to offer financial assistance through the 19+ Discretionary Student Support Fund or Advanced Learner Loan bursary, which may be able to assist with childcare support and transport expenses.

All students will receive a Scarborough TEC ID card, which must be worn at all times when on campus.  This card also gives our students access to an exclusive range of discounts in our area, from clothing to music and everyday essentials.
