Learning support is intended to help students to achieve their learning goal and maximise their potential by providing additional funding to help them overcome any barriers to learning. Learning support is defined as any activity which provides direct support for learning to individual students, which is over and above that which is normally provided in a standard learning programme which leads to their primary learning goal.

The learning support costs recorded in this field correspond to the total amount of extra resource identified by the provider as required to meet the needs of students requiring learning support.
