Learning Support at Coleg Gwent, South Wales

Learning support

At Coleg Gwent you’ll receive an outstanding level of learning support to make sure you achieve your full potential on your course.

We offer a wide range of additional learning support for learners that require help with their studies, including:

  • Study skills

  • Numeracy

  • Literacy

  • CV building

  • Exam preparation

  • Planning and organising coursework


Help with literacy and numeracyHaving a basic grasp of literacy and numeracy is essential for your course, so if you need help in this area we can support you whilst you study.  We offer literacy and numeracy support:

- In class – where a Learning Support Advisor will support you and your group

- One to One – with a Learning Support Advisor to help you with your basic skills

- Workshops – where you can drop in to brush up on your literacy and numeracy skills


Personal tutors You’ll have a personal tutor who will support you with the change from school to college.  You’ll meet regularly to discuss progress on your course, personal development and career development, and set milestones to help you achieve your goals.

Your personal tutor will help you by:

- Inducting you into your programme of study

- Setting, monitoring and reviewing your progress through regular one-to-one and group tutorials

- Ensuring you achieve SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, timely), challenging academic and personal targets through ACE, your electronic Individual Learning Plan

- Ensuring you access appropriate and specialist support where necessary

- Developing a career plan that stimulates ambition into your chosen career and progression route

- Developing wider skills through a programme of challenges and cross-College enrichment activities
