Extra Support

Additional Support Services

Boston College understands the importance of English and maths in all aspects of your life, whether you would like to improve your employment opportunities or achieve further qualifications. GCSE grade 4 or above (C or above) in these subjects is a standard requirement for anyone wanting to progress to university and it is also valued by employers. Boston College offers support in English and Maths for those students who require help. Study skills support is also available.


Boston College’s LEAP project provides FREE support to learners alongside their timetabled lessons. Learners can access Resilience Coaches, who can provide additional support with gaining the right skills needed to move into employment after college.

Current College Learners can access the LEAP Project, by speaking to their Lecturers who will put them in contact with a member of the Team.
