College Team

As part of a caring community, our staff are supportive and accessible. Our tutor-student ratio is excellent and all students are placed with a personal tutor. Tutors offer the opportunity for you to talk about your experiences, the challenges and joys of studying, as well as provide support throughout your programme.

Our tutors are qualified and experienced, and many have their own practices and consultancies alongside working for the College.
