Our student support doesn’t stop at helping you with coursework or applying for childcare places. Your mental health and well-being are vitally important to your time at college, so we’re committed to giving you the support structures you need to succeed during your studies, and beyond.
We have various initiatives in place to support you, no matter what issues you might be facing either at home or at college.
The Students’ Union are employed to represent every student at The Sheffield College through a group of elected representatives and the SU President. If there are issues that you feel are negatively affecting your studies or your experience at college you can raise it with the Students’ Union. The SU also run various groups, such as the LGBTQ+ Society, that bring together students facing similar experiences so that they can find solidarity and friendship to support them during their college careers. The Student Voice project also allows you to give your feedback on a huge range of issues facing students at the college and affect positive change for you and your fellow students.
If you feel like you need some one-to-one support at any point during your time at college you can speak to our professional counsellors through the Listening Service.
Available for students of any level and on any course, the Listening Service is there to provide pastoral care and a listening ear for anyone in need. Whether you are struggling with mental health issues, problems at home, in your relationships or just worried about college work, the Listening Service will give you a safe space to talk.
