Health & Welfare
The College has a wide range of support available via Student Support Services. These services include:
Dyslexia, Disability and Individual Needs
The College is committed to ensuring that students with Specific Leaning Difficulties (Dyslexia), disability or other additional needs are treated fairly, and all reasonable adjustments to provision are made to allow them to reach their full potential. Our Additional Learning Team offer flexible support tailored to the individual students’ particular needs.
Financial Advice and Support
Learning Support funds may be available to support individual students who need help in meeting the costs of studying at College, including books, equipment, and subject related expenses.
The College has a multi-faith Chaplaincy Team, which seeks to support the student community. Working alongside the Faith Groups, the Chaplain is available to all students whatever their beliefs. There are also facilities available for group prayers lunchtimes and on Fridays.
The Student Welfare Advisor supports students who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties including exam stress, anxiety, eating disorders and low mood. Advice and support regarding sexual health, smoking cessation, drugs and alcohol, accommodation, funding for higher education and health promotion within the College is also available. The service is confidential.
Talking: The Counselling Service
The College Counsellor offers confidential support on any issues including work or exam stress, relationships with friends or family, anxiety or depression, or anything, however small, you would like to talk about. A Counsellor will not tell you what to do, but listen with respect and help to make your own choices and decisions. The service is free and available to all students.
The College has an on-site Youth Worker, whose role is to support students through social events and student groups.
The College takes its responsibilities for safeguarding very seriously. If, for any reason, you have concerns for your own safety or well-being, or the safety or well-being of others, should report these concerns to a member of staff. The College has policies for safeguarding and e-safety, which are available upon request.
