Transition Support

We have support in place to help you manage a change to a new place of education.

Choosing a new course or place to study can be exciting but challenging.  We are here to support you through  the process.  We work closely with  you, parents /guardians, schools and  outside agencies to help ensure your transition runs smoothly.  It is important that your support is planned in advance to make sure we can meet your needs.

We will: 

  • Let your Additional Needs Coordinator (ALNCo) know that you would like us to attend    your school review
  • Meet with you to discuss your Individual Development Plan, the  way in which you prefer to be  supported and update your one page profile to inform staff on how best to support you at college. 
  • Link with your parents or carers,  Careers Wales and other agencies to  gather and share information on how to best support you. 
  • Communicate with staff who are in contact with you so they know you  best to support you to achieve your aspirations and develop independence. 

It is important to us that you feel comfortable when you start your college course. We can offer:

  • A personalised visit to your chosen campus so you can become familiar with a new  environment and meet key members of staff.
  • Summer activities to introduce you to staff and other students. 
  • Planning your transport to college.
  • Support with the enrolment process.
  • Support with settling into college life such as meeting with you regularly, ensuring that you are able to access support and that you are making progress.  

Transition support can be requested at your interview or by contacting our Transition Officer (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

It is important that you provide us with any medical or learning support evidence that will help us support you at college.  We can then ensure that your support is planned in advance and that, if required, an appropriate transition is organised for you.
