Student Support and Wellbeing

Support & Wellbeing

We’re here to see that you adapt well to College life and receive the support that you need to make the most of your studies.

Pastoral Support

All full-time students have a named point of contact for help and advice. As well as regular group and one-to-one personal development sessions, we will monitor your progress and attendance and set targets through action planning. We also help with careers advice, CV writing, job and Higher Education applications, as well as any problems, and personal or social issues.

Student Wellbeing Officers
If you need support at College, feel overwhelmed or need helps due to problems in or outside of College, whatever the reason, our Student Wellbeing Officers are here to help. Our team work closely with students and other services both in and outside of College. The team can support via 1:1 meetings, small groups, drop-ins and through other wellbeing activities.
Academy Building, A004


The College offers a confidential counselling service which provides a space for students to discuss their concerns non judgementally. As part of this, the College’s counsellor Lorraine Fisher will work with you to find solutions to issues or simply offer a service for you to come and talk each week. Quiet Contemplation and Multi-faith/No Faith Facility is located on the ground floor in the Jubilee building in room J0.72 behind Reception. Rooms are available for personal reflection for individuals.

You can talk to us about anything….Bullying, harassment, violent or coercive relationship, abuse, drugs, home issues, homeless, sexual harassment or violence, exploitation, mental health. We’re here to help and support you.
