My client is a Further Education college with over 16,000 students of all ages, from 14 years old to their oldest learner who is 86.

Student 1 (male) - is on a carpentry course and needs support in both their learning and practical sessions. The student has autism and requires monitoring and keeping on track at all times. They also need information broke down in to manageable chunks. He is academically a very capable student but gets confused easily.
Student 2 (male) - is on a L2 IT course, he has cerebral palsy and dyslexia. He needs note taking in class and support strategies to assist with his server dyslexia. Again this student is a lovely guy and is very easy to work with.
Student 3 (male) - is also looking to attend a L2 IT course, he too has physical difficulties as well as dyslexia.
All 3 staff will be working where possible between the 3 students where timetables allow and may be required to support other students should the need arise. The hours are 20 per week over 4 days (to be confirmed) but there may be scope for more hours over 5 days depending on any additional need. The need is up till July 2014 depending on the students remaining at college.
