What our students say about us
“Since getting my diagnoses, I have been able to get some invaluable support towards my PhD from The Learning Support Centre.
The support has been in the following ways:
1) Once a week a personal tutor and I meet, she helped me to recognise what I could do as self-help strategies when reading and writing.
Self-help strategies went a long way with the 20,000 words literature review I conducted and when I was writing my research proposal of 17,000 words.
2) I also had some very prompt and high quality support to help transcribe all of my interviews for the PhD.Once again, due to my learning style, typing
a word for word interview, would have taken me a lot longer than someone who did not have learning problems.
Jotters were able to help get the transcription ready, quickly, so that I could start to analyse the data.
I am grateful for the professional, friendly and helpful support Jotters and The Learning Support Centre has provided me with.

I am now in my 4th year, and I am confident that I will complete this doctorate within the next 2 years.”

What do the YMCA say about us
“As a project we have been working with Jotters and the Learning Support Centre now for around 18 months.
I have always found their service reliable and  professional with real attention to detail across the whole organisation.
In relation to their training they delivered a topic called ‘Learning Differences’ which I was unsure about whether
my already experienced team would learn anything new ! Quite the opposite the Jotters trainers who delivered were
excellent and their knowledge was in real depth and they have a great understanding of their subject. Subsequently I
asked them to return and deliver the training to the whole of the housing department. A true professional organisation who
I will continue to do business with in the future.”

Why do Apex like working with us?

“The Learning and Support Centre have undertaken partnership work with us.
They arrange for tailored packages of support for people with mental health problems or a Learning Disability.
The tutors and staff are always helpful and professional and take a keen interest in the individual.
A package of support was arranged recently for a group of customers who cannot read and write, and real progression was shown.
They keep me fully informed of customers developments both verbally and in writing.
The customers enjoy attending the sessions which is vital and helps to build their confidence.”
