They will be given the responsibility to make sure they know their timetable and attend classes on time. They will be assigned a personal tutor who will always be available to help with any issues. Our student support services will also always be there should they need any personal advice or guidance with anything, however small, if it’s bothering them and affecting their studies they will always be able to listen any of their concerns in confidence.
Barnet and Southgate College has a thriving student services department and they offer:
To book an appointment with any member of the team above (Progression and Learning Coaches, Careers Advisers, Welfare Advisers) your child can pop into their campus Learning Resource Centre and a Learning and Enrichment Assistant will book one for them. There is also a red button on the ilearn page – the student intranet – where your child can contact our safeguarding team anonymously, or the number can be found on the back of their student ID badge.
We also provide a range of additional Learning Support for students with Education and Health Care plans and those who declare mild to moderate learning barriers. Our Learning Support Practitioners, Learning Support Tutors and Teaching Assistants can provide in and out of class support for students with a range of Special Education Needs and Disabilities, to support their engagement in learning and development. We also have communication workers/signers and assistive technology available to enhance independence in learning. For advice or guidance on next steps and further information about this, please contact: LearningSupport@barnetsouthgate.ac.uk
Student Services at the College is there to support your child along their student journey. We understand the importance of socialising and having fun so each campus has somewhere to relax with friends, play games and get involved in a range of exciting Enrichment Activities. We also use the space for external visitors to come and speak to students about key topics facing young people today. For example, drugs awareness, alcohol awareness, knife crime and sexual health. We also have Student Representatives in the College who will use the space to speak to students about College-wide issues. We also have a canteen at both Colindale and Southgate campuses and a Starbucks coffee shop at Wood Street serving barista style drinks alongside hot and cold food.
