Student Services

Lots can happen during your time at college and that’s why our Student Services team is on hand to advise and support you.

CAREERS ADVICE

The Progression+ team includes experts in admissions, careers, higher education, work experience and apprenticeships who offer advice and guidance. They can help with all aspects of careers and progression which includes applying for courses, interview tips, CV writing, application forms, job and apprenticeship searches and gap year opportunities.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

We believe that financial constraints alone should never be enough to prevent a student from studying and so we will work with you to find out what support you may be entitled to and help you to access any funding available.

ADDITIONAL LEARNING SUPPORT

Whether you have a learning difficulty such as dyslexia, need a little extra help with English or maths, have a physical disability, or need additional tuition because English is not your first language, our specialist staff will support you throughout your studies.

SAFEGUARDING

Are you or is someone you know at risk of harm? Do you need help to keep yourself or someone else safe?

Find out contact details of the college’s Safeguarding team and other agencies on our Safeguarding page.

Student Tutors

Our student tutors are here to support you throughout your time at college, and will play a key role in your study programme.

Every student, aged 16-19, has a student tutor and you will meet with them regularly. Through personal one-to-one discussions, tutors can monitor your progress, track your achievements, support attendance and set targets which will ensure you achieve your goals.

We know there are many factors that can affect you during your time at college. Our student tutors will work with you and help you through the challenges which may impact on your journey. They will offer intensive support to students who are identified as being ‘at risk’ of not achieving their qualification. This is tailored support, which seeks to remove barriers you may face with the aim to help you get back on track to completing your course successfully.

If you are aged 19 or over, you will be offered support and access to student tutoring.

ACES programme

Our unique ACES (Attitude, Choices, Employability and Skills) programme has been developed to cultivate your development and will be tailored to you, as an individual.

Delivered by our student tutors through a series of interactive workshops, it will guide you through your college journey as well as inspire and inform your future. It will cover a range of topical discussions, including environmental issues, relationships, respect and tolerance, personal wellbeing and social media. They will also work with you to cement your professional development.

Our mission is to prepare and inspire you to be a global citizen, curious about your world and ready to embrace your future.
