Learning Support

The Learning Support Team at West Cheshire College can provide practical help and support during your time at College. The team can also test for and diagnose certain conditions that may restrict your learning and put in place remedies and practical solutions to help you to succeed at College.

Services available include:


The counselling service is available to West Cheshire College students who need to talk about something in confidence. Sometimes you may be looking for a solution to a problem or you feel there may be no answers, but it can still help to talk things through anyway.

Counselling is not about someone telling you what to do. It's about valuing your own capacity to make choices and changes, and offers a time and place to fully explore your options in an open and honest way.
