Each student has a Personal Supervisor to support them directly to achieve the best they can and to help overcme any barriers. The personal supervisor monitors attendance and helps students access any specialiist support such as finance or welfare.
There are many key moments of decision during each student's time at college and we seek to support everybody at these times and we encourage the involvement of those who support the student at home.
