Learning and support

Learn Devon is dedicated to supporting learners in many different ways.

This might include providing equipment, resources in different formats or a Learning Support Assistant to work with you in a class or as part of a study programme. For courses that have a fee there is the ability to pay for courses by instalments.

At Learn Devon we have a dedicated learning support team working across the county for those needing advice or extra support. They are on hand to advise learners about the right course for them, help learners enrol on our courses and can continue supporting them throughout their learning journey. Any learner can request support.

We are here to help and our team of learning support co-ordinators are available to talk through any concerns before or after enrolment. It’s never too late to request support so learners can get in touch at any point in their learning journey. Contact your nearest centre to speak to our friendly team.
