Additional Learning Support Statement

DV8’s allocation of additional learning support funding is used to help meet the additional costs incurred in delivering provision to learners with identified wholly and exclusively additional individual support needs resulting from learning difficulties and/or disabilities, or from support required to access progression opportunities or employment, or from literacy, numeracy or language support requirements. Dv8’s additional learning support funding is not intended and will not be used to cover any general running costs incurred.

Additional learning support funds will be used to fund additional activities that provide direct learning support to learners. They will not include activities that would more usually be classified as learner financial assistance such as childcare or transport to the provider, although it may include transport between different sites of the provider for learners with mobility difficulties.
