Newcastle City Learning is committed to helping you achieve your goals so that you can get the most from your learning. During enrolment you will have the opportunity to tell us about the support you may need to help you with your course.
You will be asked if you consider yourself to have a disability, learning difficulty or health problem. We also ask you if you would find learning easier with support such as help with English and maths, careers guidance or course expenses. The information you give us will only be shared with those who need to know, like your tutor. They can then discuss your needs with you, and put things in place to make it easier for you to succeed. Telling us about any special arrangements as soon as possible gives us the best chance of putting them in place for the start of your course. If at any time on your course you need assistance please talk to your tutor.

We hope it enhances your learning and makes it fun!
Advanced Learner Loans
Level 3 and above courses will no longer be directly funded by the Government if you are 19 years old and over, unless you are aged 19-23 years and it is your first full Level 3 qualification. However, you may qualify for a Advanced Learner Loan to cover your course fees.
