Full-time students are assigned a Progression Coach, whose role is to help you review your progress, set new targets, support you with any problems you may encounter and advise you about your next steps into work or higher education. We invite parents to consultation evenings and issue progress reports during the year.
Libraries and study centres on the campuses hold all the hard copy or computer-based resources that you will need in your studies, and you will be able to freely access the internet and newspapers, magazines and journals. Flexible opening times and friendly help are always available to support your learning. Additionally, many of our services can be accessed remotely, enabling you to continue studying at home or in your place of work.
The campuses have various cafés, coffee bars and restaurants offering low-cost, high-quality catering for the occasions when you need to feed your body rather than your mind.
You will also have access to a variety of student activities. These vary from campus to campus, but typically include sport, social and recreational facilities. In addition, a wide variety of events will be regularly arranged, including sports, leisure and entertainment, plus trips and visits to places of interest.
Mentoring is a one to one service which offers support and advice to help you overcome any problems or concerns that you may have. More importantly it is someone who will listen to you.
