OUR SUPPORT TEAMS
Progress Tutors act as a first point of contact for students, delivering pastoral and academic support through one-to-one meetings and group tutorials, where students are able to reflect on their academic progress and gain an insight into their progression options after JLC.
When students embark on their JLC journey they will be assigned a Progress Tutor. Students can access their Progress Tutor at any point throughout the college week.
They also provide support with monitoring attendance and behaviour to instil independence and resilience within students. This enables them to be successful at college and prepares them for their next steps.
You can find our progress tutors in the ARC.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
“Having a Tutor has made me more confident and it has really helped me at college knowing that I can talk to them whenever I need to. It’s great to know that my Tutor can support me when needed and it also helps having a 1-1 and getting feedback has also boosted my confidence.”
Student Services are a first stop shop for all college queries. We have friendly staff who can help you with a wide range of enquiries and provide key information on many college services. The team manage all student finance schemes and are the people to talk to if you want to discuss transport, purchase print credits, report absences, pay for trips or purchase a car park permit.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
“I can now apply what I have learned and can demonstrate my skills in my personal statement and future career after university. I have become more confident in myself as I felt that I fit in well with the environment and was comfortable to achieve my targets and develop my transferable skills.”

All staff members at John Leggott College are committed to supporting students with their health and wellbeing. It is important that students are supported and happy whilst they are at college. Within college we have a dedicated wellbeing team who help to make sure that students are mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy. The team work closely with the students, teaching and pastoral staff to ensure that students are supported to deal with any problems they have.
Where appropriate the team will liaise with external agencies to ensure that we offer the right support and so that students get the best advice.
Students can access support from the wellbeing team at any point from enrolment to when they leave college. If you would like to discuss any wellbeing concerns then contact the team via reception, email or scan the QR codes in college.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
"The support from the LSA team has been exceptional. They have always helped me with any problems that I have experienced. Without these people I would not have got through college and achieve as much as I have. I will be moving onto Sheffield Hallam to study a degree in Education with Autism, SEN and Disability which is something I never thought I would be able to do but these amazing people made it possible."
