We believe everybody should be allowed to learn and maximise their potential, regardless of their learning needs.

We welcome applications from people with additional learning needs and endeavour to provide the support that’s required to help them realise their full potential for learning.

If you require any further information or support, please contact our Inclusive Support Team on 01922 657000 or email inclusivesupport@walsallcollege.ac.uk
