Student Support

Mentors

Student Mentors are JLC

Our mentoring system gives you someone to speak to about any issues you may be having at college, and also helps to support you through difficult times. Mentors can act as a link between students, parents and teachers when any problems arise, and help to resolve these issues before they have a serious impact on your progress. Mentors also arrange and deliver group sessions around important things you need to know throughout the year, so they form an important part of college life.

Another role of the Mentors is to oversee your Fit to Learn journey; this involves employability skills, preparing for progression, and ensuring that you are taking the right opportunities during your time at college to allow you to access your preferred 

options once you have finished JLC.

 

Careers

 

Our main job at JLC is to prepare you for the next step, whatever that may be, so we are always talking to you about your options for the future and what you can do to find out more. We run trips every year to a wide range of universities across the country, so that you can make an informed decision of where to study, if you choose university. We also have great links with employers which means we find out about loads of apprenticeship and employment opportunities that are available to our students, so we can pass all of this information over to you. But it doesn't stop there. Once you've made a decision, you need to apply, and we can help there too. Our Destinations team are experts in what they do, and they can give you advice on how to apply and what you should include in your application, and any extras that you should be thinking about. They're also great with mock interviews, so you can practise before the real thing!

The Destinations team are based in the ARC, so they're easily accessible to students. Just drop in and they can help!

Health and Wellbeing/Safeguarding

Within college we have a team dedicated to making sure that you stay healthy, both mentally and physically. This team includes a College Nurse, who is on site at all times during term time to help you with any medical problems you might have, and also brings in external organisations to make sure you get the best advice that we can provide on medical issues.
We also have 2 College Counsellors, who are available by appointment or on an emergency basis. Hundreds of students make use of this service every year, and it can really help during times of stress.
Our College Safeguarding Officer works alongside the Nurse and Counsellors as well as external agencies/organisations, to make sure that our students are safe, both at college and in their home life. You may be referred to the Safeguarding Officer by a member of staff, by another student, or you can refer yourself. In any instance of a referral we will discuss the issue with you and any other relevant people and decide the best course of action.
All of the team take pride in their commitment to confidentiality; meaning that they will not pass on anything that you discuss with them, unless they suspect that you may harm yourself or others, in which case they are legally obliged to.

Learning Support

The Learning Support Assistant (LSA) team work closely with students and teachers to ensure that you are as successful as you can be at college, both academically and personally. The LSA’s can provide in-class support, revision help, tailored resources to suit your learning style, and also personal support such as confidence building, developing your social skills, and creating techniques that you can use in the future to help make you more independent. 

 

 

Financial Support

We aim to ensure that financial issues don’t stop anybody from studying at John Leggott College and we don’t charge tuition fees to anybody aged 16–18 who has been a UK resident for at least three years.

There is a guaranteed bursary for students receiving certain benefits and a discretionary bursary, which you can apply for if you come from a lower income family.

Each application for financial assistance will be treated with the strictest confidence. To find out if you are eligible for any of the support available please contact Student Services or click below for more details.

John Leggott College Student Fundt

The JLC Student Trust Fund incorporates both the Bill Martin Student Fund and the Barbara Brown Fund. The Bill Martin Fund is named in memory of Bill Martin who, prior to his death, had been a keen advocate of the college, having served as a governor for many years. The fund was established in 1995 as a charitable trust fund 'to support and promote the advancement of education of present or former full-time students of John Leggott College by granting financial assistance to them'. Grants of up to £250 are available to students to support educational trips and resources. 

Students who wish to apply for help from the fund can obtain application forms from the Student Support Centre in college. Former students should write a letter of application in which they state clearly the reason for their request. These letters of application are considered at the meetings of the trustees which are held once per term.

The Barbara Brown Scholarship was set up at the request of former JLC student Barbara Brown's family. Barbara was a strong advocate of Modern Foreign Languages and thus the fund finances an annual scholarship of £1000 to a single student who progresses on to HE to study a course with a focus on MFL. Eligible students are identified via UCAS entries and invited to apply in writing. 

The fund is registered with the Charity Commissioners as Charity Number 1048957. The current trustees are:

  • Malcolm Fry (Chair of Trustees / Community Representative)
  • Adrian Coggan (Vice Chair/Community Representative)
  • Leon Riley (College Principal)
  • Malcolm Dobbs(Community Representative)
  • Janice Moran (College Representative - Director of Student Support)
  • Julie Duffy (College Representative - Academic Advocate)  

Donations to the Bill Martin Charitable Trust Fund

The Trustees are always pleased to receive donations from individuals and groups. Such financial support is added to the capital funds invested by the Trustees thus ensuring the sustainability of the fund. The investment is reviewed on an annual basis. 

Donations in the form of cheques should be made payable to 'John Leggott College Student Fund'. All donations can be received as Gift Aid which also allows income tax to be reclaimed by the Fund.
