Student Support

Here are some of the support services available to you throughout your time at College…

Progress Tutor

When you start your course, you will be teamed up with a progress tutor who you will see regularly to discuss how you are doing, along with any issues or problems that you may have. If you have a problem that they can’t solve, they will refer you to someone who can help.

Careers & Guidance

We have a dedicated careers team who can help you choose the right course at College and then support you with applications to university, employment searches, a change of direction, or anything else to do with your future plans.


If you want to talk in confidence about any worries you have, then our approachable counsellor is available for you to speak to privately, to help you manage & overcome your problems.

Disability Support

If you have a physical disability, visual impairment, hearing impairment or mental ill health we will do our best to provide you with all the support, equipment, access & learning resources you might need throughout your time at College. This support is confidential.

Study Support (Additional Learning Support or ALS)

If you are concerned about how you will cope with your course or simply want to improve your study skills, then Study Support can help with a range of techniques such as managing revision, developing literacy & numeracy skills, dyslexia support and improving spelling & grammar.

Other Support Services

  • Trafford Youth workers can offer guidance & support on a range of issues from relationships to drugs advice, or anything else you want to talk about.
  • The College’s Contraceptive & Sexual Health Service is available to all students for friendly & confidential advice on different forms of contraception & sexual health testing.
  • We also have FE Chaplains to listen to your hopes and concerns & to help you explore a range of different faith issues, questions & interests.

We think it’s important to keep your parents updated on your progress. We send regular feedback reports home, keep them informed on your attendance & punctuality, and will invite them into the College for Parents’ Evenings.
