Student Services

We are committed to helping all students achieve their potential, and providing whatever support they need to successfully gain their qualifications and progress on to a fulfilling career.

Students who have been in care face a number of additional challenges, so we work in partnership with carers, social workers and other professionals to put a plan in place that will give them the support they need. Each care-experienced student at the College is supported by a designated staff member and a Personal Education Plan (PEP).

See our Statement of offer to care-experienced students.

Southwark College is aware and understands the challenges that care experienced students face. Although we may never know what happened in their life prior to college we work hard to make every student feel supported and part of a community.

We are a partner of the Care Leaver Covenant, which helps support students with their progression and next steps after college. Through this partnership, our dedicated Care Leaver Coordinator organises activities and signposts opportunities in the local area. They also run workshops throughout the year for care experienced students, provide progression and support during exam time and organises events to help students meet other care experienced individuals.
