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.
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
Life can be very challenging and sometimes it can feel too much to cope alone. Counselling can offer you a safe and confidential space to be heard – an opportunity to talk to a caring, non-judgemental professional who will help you to explore the causes of your distress and find ways to move forward. Counselling can be face-to-face in College, online via Teams, or over the phone, whichever is easiest for you. If you feel that counselling might be helpful for you, please email email@example.com. The College counsellor Kelly Benneworth-Gray will invite you for an initial appointment to talk about your needs. Counselling is free and available to all students at College during term-time.
Wellbeing in Mind
We also work with therapists from Wellbeing in Mind, a specialist mental health service provided by Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust. Therapists are based within College and they can support students experiencing anxious feelings and low mood.
