Support

Students talking to each other on the grass

We’re here to support your child every step of their journey with us. First and foremost, any student who feels they’re struggling at College, for any reason, can speak to one of our Student Liaison Support workers. They’ll provide informal support and guidance on a one-to-one basis when it’s needed, and help your child to get back on track and enjoying the course.

All full-time students have a personal tutor and will receive individual and academic reviews throughout the year to make sure they’re achieving their full potential. There are also regular group tutorials where we focus on preparing students for work and life.

Additional support

We want to help all our students to succeed. In some cases, that means offering extra support, particularly when a student has a disability or learning difficulty. If you feel your child needs any additional help, please tell us so we can give them the assistance they deserve.

Students are free to tell us about their disability at any time – from the application to during the course itself. We respect each student’s right not to tell us about a disability, but if we don’t know, we can’t help. For more information on the support we can give, please see our Personal Support page.

Careers guidance

Our careers guidance service can help your child to make the right choices throughout their time at the College. As well as our own qualified advisers, we work in partnership with Careers South West to offer individual guidance interviews and all kinds of careers information.

The service is free, impartial, confidential and available to all students. As part of our commitment, the College has been awarded the Matrix Award for information, advice and guidance and works within the National Careers Service Framework.
