STUDENT FINANCE & WELFARE
Other key members of our Aylesbury Campus' Student Services team that you'll get to know are our Safeguarding & Prevent Officer, Alex and our Student Advisors, Sarah and Moyra. Based in the Student Services office just off of Reception, they will be your go-to people for any help with things such as bursaries, loans, transport or free school meals as well as any concerns you may have for the safety or wellbeing of yourself, other students and staff.
A core section of the Aylesbury Campus is our Learning Centre where you'll be able to obtain a range of learning resources including digital resources such as laptops and other hardware. Our team of Learning Centre Advisors help to actively promote the use of technology in education both inside and outside of the classroom and they'll also be the ones you turn to when your having any technological issues at College, such as logging into the College cloud or the Parent Portal.
STUDENT SUPPORT OVERVIEW
All aspects of Student Welfare are managed by our Student Services department. Based at the heart of each campus, our Student Services team work tirelessly to provide advice, safety and reassurance to our students.
Student Services can advise and assist you with financial problems, home troubles, accommodation or issues relating to your course, as well as providing one-to-one mentoring and general advice and guidance.
Learning Support is a service for students who might need some extra help while studying with us. We can provide additional support for you if you have a learning difficulty, disability, medical condition, literacy, numeracy or language need.
The support we offer will be different for every person. It is available to all students subject to assessment and agreement of need and resources. Your support will be regularly reviewed and may be increased or reduced during the year.
We understand that some prospective students may be worried about the costs relating to coming to College. We would like to reassure you that there is a range of financial support options available for students of all ages as part of the College Support Scheme (CSS).
The College Support Scheme is available to give financial assistance with costs associated with a course such as uniform, kit, books, DBS check, trips and transport as well as supporting you with Free College Meals, if you are eligible.
As a student, the Learning Technology Team will provide you with access to a cutting-edge Virtual Learning Environment which acts as a portal to all your College digital services.
All students have an E-ILP, a digital area where you can monitor your progress, set ambitious targets, track attendance and more. This can be shared with parents or carers too via our Parent Portal.
You will have access to PCs, Macs, Chromebooks and iPads to assist with your studies, along with free WiFi if you wish to bring your own devices.
Having difficulty figuring out how you are going to get to College? We make it straightforward travelling to and from our campuses, with our own fleet of buses as well as close links with local Buckinghamshire Transport networks.
Our Campuses benefit from an on-site car parks where our students can park with a permit. Permits are available from our online store.
