Each student is an individual and may require different levels and types of support throughout their time at CTC.

All students are assigned to a Personal Tutor. This is someone, usually one of their academic tutors, who takes a special interest in them and generally remains their Personal Tutor throughout their course.

In addition to lessons, students spend time with their Personal Tutors in a separate period weekly and should be the first person they approach with academic or any other concerns including pastoral issues.  Personal Tutors also write reports on their tutees and help with other matters such as writing university personal statements, academic reviews, target setting and are a good liaison between all the tutee’s academic tutors.

Parents or guardians may always approach Personal Tutors who will be happy to help or refer their query onto the right person if necessary.

In addition we have a Senior Leadership Team consisting of the Principal, Vice Principal, Head of Student Welfare and Bursar and students may approach any of these staff if they wish on any matter.

There are also Heads of Year and Head and Departments for students to approach as necessary.

Furthermore, CTC has its own dedicated Welfare team on hand to ensure any matters, personal or otherwise, are dealt with effectively and supportively to allow students to concentrate fully and successfully on their studies.

Students therefore have a wide choice of professionals to approach if needed. CTC also has excellent systems in place to identify any student who may need extra care and ensures early identification and intervention is taken as necessary.

It is very important students feel secure, happy and settled on their course and the College promotes and maintains high standards of individual attention and pastoral care to enable every student to reach their full potential.
