Transition and Retention (Well-being Support)

Our Transition and Retention Co-ordinator wellbeing teams are spread across the college. They provide a service that supports the positive transition of applicants into the college and for current students between programmes and levels and onward progression beyond NPTC Group of Colleges.  The team also provides support for at-risk learners whilst on the programme.  The Co-ordinator well-being team draws on relationships with partner agencies to support those most at risk, a close working relationship is also established with the College academic schools and the Study Support Coaches.


Working in the Student Zones are a team of Student and Business Services Assistants who draw together the key aspects of the student support functions. The teams are spread across the campuses which means that students are looked after at most points of entry into the college.

Counselling Service

Four Counsellors are available to provide support for students across all campuses. Access to the service is via a referral process, students can self refer or be referred by their tutors, counseling is provided on a six-session model and the team link closely with specialist external partners.
