We support our students in lots of different ways.
Preparation for life after Newcastle Sixth Form College
Our students also have access to a Progression Co-ordinator and a Career Advisor.
Our Progression Co-ordinator is on hand to offer advice and guidance on applying to university and the UCAS process, as well as organising our successful annual Higher Education Progression Fair.
They are also experienced in offering support and guidance to students who choose to take part in additional further education opportunities, such as the Sutton Trust US Programme.
Detroit Osei-Bonsu took part in the programme in the summer of 2014. Read her story
Learning Support Service
The Learning Support Service (LSS) provides a range of support throughout their entire time at Newcastle Sixth Form College.
They provide a specialist assessment for each student, to establish what support is required, and work in collaboration with curriculum staff to reduce barriers to learning, enhancing opportunity and success.
Academic Tutor Groups
Students join a tutor group of around 25 students and will meet with their Academic Tutor each week.
Academic Tutors encourage the development of independence, confidence and ambition during these sessions, and students can access any additional support that they might need.
