Who We Are

 ‌‌Who are Learning Support? What do we do?

‌Who‌ ‌‌are we? ‌ ‌

The Student Learning Support Service is‌ ‌delivered‌ ‌by‌ ‌the‌ ‌National‌ ‌Learning‌ ‌Network in NCAD.

It‌ ‌is‌ ‌a‌ ‌confidential‌ ‌academic‌ ‌support‌ ‌service‌ ‌which‌ ‌provides‌ ‌assistance‌ ‌to‌ ‌students‌ ‌in‌ ‌managing‌ ‌the‌ ‌demands‌ ‌of‌ ‌college‌ ‌life. 

Learning Support is provided to students who are registered with the service.

‌What‌ ‌do‌ ‌we‌ ‌do? ‌ ‌

The Student Learning‌ ‌Support Service‌ ‌is‌ ‌provided‌ ‌to‌ ‌students‌ ‌who‌ ‌are‌ ‌registered‌ ‌with‌ ‌NCAD’s‌ ‌disability‌ ‌office.

The‌ ‌service‌ ‌provides‌ ‌specifically‌ ‌tailored‌ ‌individual‌ ‌support‌ ‌sessions‌ ‌to‌ ‌registered‌ ‌students‌ ‌as‌ ‌needed. The‌ ‌service‌ ‌also‌ ‌provides‌ ‌skills‌ ‌based‌ ‌seminars‌ ‌and‌ ‌lectures‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌wider‌ ‌student‌ ‌body‌ ‌on‌ ‌topics‌ ‌such‌ ‌as‌ ‌essay‌ ‌writing‌ ‌and‌ ‌planning/organising. ‌

‌‌Learning‌ ‌Support‌ ‌adopts‌ ‌a‌ ‌holistic‌ ‌approach‌ ‌and‌ ‌recognises‌ ‌that‌ ‌student‌ ‌well-being‌ ‌is‌ ‌intertwined‌ ‌with‌ ‌their‌ ‌academic‌ ‌experiences. The‌ ‌service‌ ‌strives‌ ‌to‌ ‌promote‌‌ ‌students'‌ independence‌ ‌and‌ ‌encourages‌ ‌them‌ ‌to‌ ‌develop‌ ‌the‌ ‌skills‌ ‌that‌ ‌will‌ ‌help‌ ‌them‌ ‌to‌ ‌flourish‌ ‌during‌ ‌their‌ ‌time‌ ‌in‌ ‌college. ‌ ‌

The main focus of Learning Support is to provide Study skills support to all students in NCAD. We also provide Social, Wellness and Organisation skills which can impact academic performance.
