A learning or placement support plan is tailor-made plan for any student with a recognised disability and/or long term or serious medical or psychological condition. The plans set out specific support and arrangements to help you succeed.

If you have evidence of a recognised disability and/or long term or serious medical or psychological condition that’s been diagnosed by a medical professional, you’re likely to be entitled to a learning support plan as part of an overall support package.

Key benefits of learning and placement support plans

  • They’re tailored to meet your specific needs.
  • You have direct input into developing the plan to ensure you agree with the steps being taken.
  • Your teaching team can provide you with discreet additional support.
  • Your plan’s in place throughout your studies, and reviewed regularly, so you’re fully supported during your time at Christ Church.

I’m eligible. What next?

You’ll be given an appointment with one of our Disability Advisers. Working with you and your teaching team, they’ll develop and implement an overall support package tailored to you. They will also:

  • Recommend and, in many cases, source additional support including adjustments to learning, teaching and assessment methods.
  • Liaise with external partners, such as Student Finance England or specialist providers, to help you gain external funding to pay for disability support and specialist equipment.
  • Consider any other entitlements such as initial reasonable adjustment plans, special arrangements for exams and extenuating circumstances.
