You will have a personal tutor who is responsible for helping you make the most of College and they are your first point of contact if you have any concerns. Your personal tutor will provide support and guidance, keep a check on your attendance, behaviour and academic performance to make sure you are successful.

You will have a weekly group with your personal tutor which will help to prepare you for life after your studies with discussions on topics including personal finance, independent living and current affairs.

Safeguarding & Pastoral Support

The College is committed to protecting all students and staff and therefore has a whole organisational approach to Safeguarding. The College works in accordance with the regulations and specifications laid down by the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA).
Training and development is effectively built into the College recruitment and induction procedures, the staff development programme and is embedded into all college activities. Safeguarding is deemed to be the responsibility of all members of staff and Governors and appropriate training and development is mandatory.
