Learning Support is here to offer advice and support to all students. We are here to help you achieve a positive and successful learning experience, to get the best out of your time at The Learning Connexion (TLC), and to help you prepare for the future.

What we do

Despite your love of art and the best intentions, sometimes ‘life’ can crop up and throw a spanner in the works. Learning Support is here to help work with you through these times and to ensure you get the best TLC can offer.

We help with:

Study skills, such as managing your time, organising workloads, planning ahead

Keeping focus, getting through ‘blocks’ and finding inspiration

Brushing up on literacy, numeracy or language skills

Working on CVs, job applications, interview techniques and planning

Or just having someone to talk to, to help work out what’s going wrong and to work out what steps can be taken to start things going in a positive direction

What we don’t do

Learning Support is not a counselling service, but we are here to listen and try our best to accommodate your learning needs. If we can’t sort things out together, we have connections with a range of different services throughout the Wellington/Hutt Valley area to help you find what you need.

Disability, mental health and dyslexia

If you have indicated during enrolment, or at any other time, that you would like support, Learning Support will contact you to discuss how we can best work with you.

Youth students, students restarting, students in transition between programmes

Learning Support is here to ensure that you are getting the best out of your time with TLC. We’re here to help you with planning the direction of your programme and deciding what steps are right for you.

International Students

Please contact Learning Support for advice, guidance and support with meeting your course requirements.


Every term we provide a series of workshops which help you gain transferable skills - skills that will help you study, as well as set you up for the future. Please feel free to come along and join in. Workshops are advertised on our website, our Facebook page, on our shared student page, and also on posters around campus. We have created resources for distance delivery students, so please contact us if you are interested in any of them. Also, if you have any suggestions for additional workshops, please let us know..
