Progression Coaches

Every full time student has a Progression Coach who is responsible for the supervision of all the students in his/her group.

As well as monitoring students’ attendance and progress, the Progression Coach will help provide a general educational framework for students and will develop in groups and individually the following parts of the curriculum:

  • The student’s part in the life of the College as a whole
  • The links between the student and the wider community
  • The links between a student’s specialist study and other areas of knowledge
  • The development of study skills
  • Review of student’s programme of study and their progress
  • The building up and termly review of an Individual Action Plan for each student

Your Progression Coach is here to ensure you achieve your full potential at College. They are on hand to provide support in many areas of your educational career such as help with organising your coursework and studies, supporting you when you feel under pressure and providing objective advice on lots of issues.
