Accessing Further Education at The College


The college is committed to helping students succeed whatever their background or support needs.  We will ensure that you are treated fairly and we will do all that we can to make sure that your learning journey at the college is successful, enabling you to achieve and reach your full potential.  Please let us know what you need so that we can make reasonable adjustments to support your success.  You can also take a look at our Guidance for Students with a Disability, available on: www.iwcollege.ac.uk

We will provide, wherever possible, as wide a range of opportunities and support for students who have disabilities and/or learning difficulties and have a commitment to encourage them to join ‘mainstream’ groups wherever appropriate. The College has the facilities and is happy to produce learning materials in a variety of formats where necessary. It can, if appropriate, provide a range of equipment to help students learn and additional support is available within the classroom or workshop environment if required.

For further details, or information on how the College can help please contact us or telephone: (01983) 535213.

Equalities Information

The Equality Act 2010, Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) requires the college as a public sector organisation to provide equality information to the general public in relation to the demographical profile of the college and our island community. This is provided in an annual report each January (wef January 2016 – previously reports have been provided in July and December each year since 2011 but due to the merging of policies this will now take place on an annual basis)

For up-to-date information and statistics on the Isle of Wight visit www.iwight.com/factsandfigures.

We have developed out approach to equality and diversity with a single approach policy document which included our equality objectives.  Following a review of these objectives in March 2015, we have combined the Single Approach to Equality Policy and Equality and Diversity Statement into a single reference point, incorporating our equality objectives.
