Support for Students

Students with autism accessing further education are entitled to support to meet their needs. The college will have support for students with additional needs. They should be able to offer advice and support in relation to your situation. Your Connexions advisor should also be able to offer you support with planning your education once you leave school.

Trafford college provides a range of courses that can be accessed by students who require additional support. Students wishing to find out about courses avaiable at Trafford College can go to the website. www.trafford.ac.uk  All of the local colleges have open days where young people and families can look round the campus and ask questions about their chosen subject. 

Students with autism wanting to go on to university to access higher education can apply for the Disabled Student Allowance. This will enable them to access the support and/or equipment they need to study at university. For more information about this allowance go to www.gov.uk/disabled-students-allowances-dsas
