Pastoral care relates to physical and emotional welfare and is essential to student success. On entering the college, we allocate a progress mentor to you, offering advice and guidance that helps you settle quickly into college life.
Your progress mentor covers the pastoral curriculum - a programme of student support sessions that cover topics such as career advice and guidance, mental and physical well-being, and life skills like managing your finances - in weekly group sessions. These sessions help to prepare you for life after college, but if you need to discuss your individual needs, there are opportunities for that too.
One-to-one meetings with your mentor allow you to discuss your academic progress, personal development and individual improvement targets, helping you to make career and higher education decisions that are right for you. Your mentor will also suggest events on campus that complement your learning.
