Support is a big priority at the college.

As a learner at Reading College, you have access to a great deal of support for your studies and your welfare.

Extra support

If you need extra support, we offer specialist tuition and support frameworks. This could include literacy, numeracy or IT support.

It can also include language support if English is not your first language, or support for dyslexia or other learning difficulties or disabilities.

If you would like to find out more about our support services or if you would like a confidential chat just drop into Advice and Admissions or call us on 0800 371 434.


During your studies you will have a personal tutor who will work with you to help you achieve at your best and plan your next steps.

Your tutor should be your first call for support, should you need it. However, we do have a range of support services – such as a counselling service – and your tutor may well suggest you access one of these other services if you need more intensive support.

Reading College is a diverse and exciting community built on mutual respect, celebration and a love for learning. There are also lots of people who can help and support you along the way.

We want your time with us to be happy and successful.
