The College promotes good health and wellbeing and there are a number of services to support learners during their time at College:
The Counselling Service offers one-to-one sessions and drop-ins to any learner who needs confidential, professional support with personal issues. The service operates during term time, Monday to Friday, from 9:00am to 4:30pm. All Counsellors are members of the BACP and abide by their Code of Ethics and Practice. Appointments can be made by dropping into the Wellbeing Centre at the Crewe Campus, or by approaching a Tutor/Personal Development Tutor, who can refer you for an appointment.
Staff responsible for health and wellbeing can refer to Cheshire East’s Stop Smoking Advisor who can offer help and support to staff and learners who want to give up smoking, including prescribing Nicotine Replacement Therapy (e.g. patches, chewing gum, etc.). Personal Development Tutors can refer learners for this service.
The College offers a sexual health and advice service through partnerships with other agencies, and there are identified times where learners can access advice on all aspects of sexual health, including contraception, testing for sexually-transmitted infections, pregnancy testing and sexuality/gender issues. If you would like to access this service, please contact Learner Services for more information on 01244 656401.
