Specialist support team

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

Your specialist support officer is here to help you with achieving your goals

The specialist support officers are there to help students overcome the barriers that are preventing them progressing in 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 specialist 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 their support area which are broken down into 6 groups; 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 & well-being. We work with curriculum staff such as tutors, curriculum managers and progress mentors and various other staff from the college to ensure that learners receive the right support across college.
