College life can sometimes seem daunting, but don't worry! We have a team of people who work alongside your subject teachers to make sure you get help when you need it. Students at St Brendan's are all treated as individuals and staff work hard to ensure your education and support is tailored to you.
The College has a specialist Learning Development team who provide additional learning support which is tailored to individual needs. The team has its own suite of rooms including dedicated computers, specialist software and a quiet zone.
The Learning Support Team offers one-to-one development or small group support to enable you to develop the necessary skills to succeed on your course. This might be specialist support for an impairment or disability, individually planned support for those with a recognised learning difficulty, or generalised help to raise the standard of work for any student, whether or not you have a specific difficulty.
Assistance is offered for all subjects with an emphasis on study skills and essay writing, using a variety of techniques and resources.
Hear from the Academic Mentors - the team that will support you on every step of your St Brendan's journey - from your first day to your graduation.
You will be timetabled to meet regularly with your Mentor and your tutor group. During these meetings your attendance, progress and effort will be monitored and you will also be prepared for the next stage in your life, be it university, an apprenticeship, a gap year or the world of work.
