All full-time students who are aged between 16-18 years old will be assigned a Personal Development Tutor (PDT) who will guide their academic and wellbeing in College through tailored and individual support.
PDTs have an abundance of skills and all our teams are appropriately-qualified and undertake continuous professional development to provide the very best and most up-to-date support for our students.
PDT teams are located in accessible, central locations on each Campus and work with other support services to provide a holistic approach in the development of each student.
PDTs quickly develop a strong rapport with their students and ensure that any barriers to learning are effectively removed giving students the optimum chances to have a successful and fulfilling time at College.
