Your individual learning plan

To help you and your tutors track your progress, the College has developed a range of leading-edge tools so that you can complete an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) which can be monitored and updated by yourself and your tutors.

We ask you to set your own targets and assess your own strengths and weaknesses - this helps you to see how well you are achieving and makes sure that you understand how to meet your targets. Many courses also use an electronic mark book which enables you to see your marks and grades on your ILP.

Your academic progress

Your Personal Tutor will help you to ensure you make good progress on your course and meet your deadlines and targets. You will have a series of one-to-one reviews with your Personal Tutor which cover a range of topics as the year unfolds - from how you are settling in at the start, turning to your on-going progress as your programme develops, and then onto your plans for the future towards the end of the course.

Specialist Support

We know it’s important for you to get expert, confidential help if there’s something worrying you. That’s why we offer you easy access to a range of specialist support agencies. Also, we have a college counsellor on-site.

Personal Tutors

All full-time students get a personal tutor: a friendly member of staff who will be your ‘go to’ person in relation to your academic progress and support.
