For the management of additional financial support for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.


Where no additional support costs have been incurred zero should be returned.

The additional support costs correspond to the amount of extra resource identified by the institution as required to meet the needs of learners such as those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities per year.

Additional funding may be claimed where an institution provides additional support to a learner and the extra costs of doing so are above a threshold level.

Where a learner for whom additional support costs are incurred withdraws, the actual - not projected - support cost should be recorded.

Additional support is defined as any activity which provides direct support for learning to individual learners, which is over and above that which is normally provided in a standard learning programme which leads to their primary learning goal. The additional support is required to help learners gain access to, progress towards and successfully achieve their learning goals. The need for additional support may arise from a learning difficulty or disability or from literacy, numeracy or language support requirements.
