Supporting Our Students

The Manchester College is committed to ensuring all our students receive the support they may need to achieve and enjoy college. We do this in a number of different ways.

The college Safeguarding Practitioners are based on every campus and are there to support learners through their time at college. If they are having difficulties in or out of college, they will provide effective and timely support and interventions for the students in need of safeguarding and protection. You can find out more information on our Student Support pages .

Members of our Careers, Employability & Welfare Team are based on every campus and can offer help and support on many topics including:

  • Course and career planning
  • Student finance/funding
  • Welfare issues

More detailed information about the roles and services of our Careers, Employability & Welfare Team can be found on our Student Support pages .

On each campus there is a team of pastoral support officers who can support students with support where needed to ensure students reach their full potential. They proactively support the achievement of the study programme by addressing the welfare needs of students, including rapid intervention for learners.

The Supported Learning team offers personalised support programmes in partnership with curriculum teaching teams. We co-ordinate and provide support to learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). 

Our aim is to remove learning barriers so every student can access a highly effective learning programme. If you need a higher level of support, we will work together with you to identify your requirements.  If you have a disability or learning difficulty we can discuss your personal learning support needs and work with you to create your personal learning plan.

Our Additional Learning Support Managers are your first point of contact and are available via email: specialistsupport@tmc.ac.uk
