Literacy & Numeracy

Literacy and numeracy can be a stumbling block for many learners and workers. 

What Does It Mean?
All of our full time programmes provide support and assistance in reading, writing and number, relevant to your training. Students entering full time study at ComCol undertake an assessment of strengths and weaknesses in literacy and numeracy and progress assessments take place later in the study programme.  Progress is reported in individual learning plans with goals set to develop skills in these areas.

Tutor Support
We ensure that our tutors are supported in integrating literacy and numeracy into their programmes, by providing relevant and regular professional development, training and resources.
