The College prides itself on the support it offers to students, which includes both academic guidance and pastoral care.
You will have an academic coach, who is there to help you achieve the very best you can. You will meet regularly to discuss your progress. Target setting and reviews of those targets will help you to stay on top of your work and achieve your potential. They will also support your progression onto the next stage of your career, including with university or job applications.
You can also expect guidance and advice from your teachers both in lessons and via optional workshops, which are run to aid your learning.
A dedicated Student Support team is on hand to help you with careers advice, counselling, health advice and student welfare issues. There is a multi-faith chaplaincy team, a work experience co-ordinator and a youth worker to support you. You will find them friendly, approachable and supportive. Financial advice is also available.
The College’s Additional Learning team exists to assist students if extra support is required. This may include students with disabilities and all reasonable adjustments to provision are made to ensure a positive learning environment.
Enrichment is also an important part of College life. This is an activity that you undertake alongside your studies, which makes your time at College a more richly fulfilling experience.
There are lots of reasons to take on an enrichment option, not least because you can have a lot of fun! It can also help you to stand out from the crowd when applying for university or employment, where competition can be fierce.
