Student Support

We're here to help

Starting a new course in a new college can be a very daunting experience and we are here to support you. No matter how you feel and whatever you’re going through, you can lean on us.

You’re never alone when you’re at Performers College. Our student services make sure of that.

Supporting your Journey

We work hard to make sure you have access to the support you need to succeed throughout your training.

That’s why we have schemes in place to help you before you start and while you’re here. Our team are fully trained professionals and always ready to listen, help and put in place action plans when needed.

We’re committed to a policy of equal opportunities. This means we aim to make all our services available to every student, regardless of background, culture, gender or sexuality.

We can support you if you have specific learning difficulties, dyslexia, medical conditions or other disabilities.

Our student support team can put together an individual support plan, created specifically for you. Working with you on a one to one basis during your studies, our lecturers will help you develop skills to assist with academic writing, approaching assessments and coursework.

We’re also here to help with any queries or troubles you might have about housing and funding. Our student services teams have access to training and resources which gives us the ability to offer advice and guidance on life outside the college.

For example, if you have questions about your tenancy agreement, or want to make sure you are receiving the maximum funding available to you, make an appointment to come and see us. If you hit a crisis, ask us about the hardship fund, which is available to students who require short term financial help in an emergency.

Creating a sense of community and a family environment is important to us. Your student support team can help you realise any ideas you have for clubs, societies or social events.

We will also ensure that you’re kept regularly updated with everything that’s going on around the college.

Your well-being and welfare are at the heart of everything we believe in.

If you ever experience any difficulties, it’s always better to talk to someone. Our student support team are trained listeners and are always here. They offer a safe space to discuss any of your concerns, whether you want to talk to them about your mental health, being away from home for the first time, any financial worries, personal issues, or you just want someone to offload to.

We can offer counselling and stress management. This is done on a one to one basis and is strictly confidential.
