Personal Tutoring and Learning Support
Personal Tutorials

• Every student who attends the college full-time will be offered the support of a Personal Tutor for one to one tutorials and group tutorials.

• Your PT is the person you talk to about how you are getting on and when you have a problem. They will help you to get any help you need to make sure you stay on track with your learning at College.

• You will also learn important life skills like how to keep healthy and the skills you need to learn well and to get a job.

We can help with:
