Specialist support team

The support coaches are here to support you during your time at college.

Our support coaches are here to help you with achieving your goals

The support coaches are here to help students overcome the barriers that are preventing them progressing on their course and also in their personal life. This support could begin with gathering transition information and providing specialist support to meet the needs of the student.

Ultimately, the support coaches would support the student all the way through to them gaining employment once their course has finished and they are ready to leave college.

Each support coach has specialist knowledge in vaious support areas which are; young carers, young parents, learners not in parental accommodation, looked after/care leavers, learners with historic and current involvement with the criminal justice system and mental health and well-being. We work with curriculum staff such as tutors, heads of departments and various other staff from the college to ensure that learners receive the right support across college.
