Each student will be allocated an Academic Advocate. These skilled members of staff work with students to ensure they make use of all the opportunities available to them to establish themselves as an effective learner. They will ensure our students find the appropriate advice on any aspect of life at college which affects their progress and will help them set and meet personal targets.
Academic Advocates offer help and support if students are experiencing difficulties organising work, meeting deadlines or need help with revision.
The Learning Support Team can offer specialised one-to-one and in-class support for students with additional needs such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.
When it is time for students to think about progressing on from college, our application mentors can help students with UCAS (University applications) and apprenticeship applications. We have specialists in particular areas, such as medicine, so students will always receive the best and most up-to-date advice, to help them produce a successful application.
Students are encouraged to explore the many destinations options available to them on completion of their studies. We have loads of resources and information to help them and students have access to our destinations team to offer advice. There will be opportunities both through subject tutors and the destinations and opportunities team to learn first-hand about universities, volunteering, and work placements and how they can help students find their ideal vocation.
At JLC there are always people available to help students – no matter what the problem! They can make appointments to see the Health Officer, College Counsellors and the Safeguarding & Welfare Officer at any time.
We are committed to ensuring all of our students are safe and happy during their time at college. Our Safeguarding and Welfare Officer, Amanda Tasker, is always available to discuss any issues you may have.
We aim to ensure that financial issues don’t stop anybody from studying at John Leggott College and we don’t charge tuition fees to anybody aged 16-18 who has been a UK resident for at least three years.
There is a guaranteed bursary for students receiving certain benefits and a discretionary bursary, which you can apply for if you come from a lower income family.
Applications for these can be made as soon as students start college in September. To find out if you are eligible for any of the support available please contact Student Services or visit the college website for more information.
