Personal Development

Coming to college is the time to experience a new independence, discover a self-belief for who you want to be and to be super excited about your future potential.

When you start college, you will be allocated a dedicated Personal Tutor who will help you settle into college life and be your first point of contact for any issues you have. You will be allocated 1 hour of Personal Development (or PD) on timetable every week and you will spend time with your Progress and Development Tutor who will offer support and introduce you to lots of different topics to help you develop a range of skills to prepare you for your next steps!
