At Runshaw College, all our students are at the heart of everything we do. We endeavour to ensure that every student feels happy and fulfilled during their time at the college, realise their full potential and acquire the skills that equip them to achieve their future goals and ambitions.
We have a great track record in supporting students. In our last three college inspections, our support for students was graded as ‘outstanding’. At a recent Best Practice visit from Ofsted they said Runshaw was “…in a league of its own”. If you have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and need more comprehensive support, we can work with you, your current school and the Local Authority to ensure that you get the best possible support when you come to Runshaw. Arrangements can be made for transition visits to help with the move from school to college and, we are happy to come out to school to see what works best for you.
The Main Aim of Study Support is to work with you as an individual, but also in some cases, with your parent/guardian and teachers, to increase your confidence and independence in preparation for adulthood and for the future, whatever you choose to do. We have a team of Specialist Inclusive Learning Tutors offering personalised 1:1 Specialist Tutorials, to ensure teaching is at the correct level and pace for you.
We want the learning experience to be meaningful and for you to enjoy your time at Runshaw in order to reach your full potential. We offer support for English, Maths and Study Skills on a one to one or small group basis. These are normally scheduled in 8 week blocks and, as a student, you would attend once a week for 30 minutes, outside of class time. At the end of the 8 sessions, progress is reviewed and you may be offered further sessions in agreement with your teacher.
