Forth Valley College wants all Care Experienced students, to be successful during their time studying here. We want everyone to gain a place on an appropriate course, learn new skills, gain qualifications, and progress into a positive destination whether that be further education, higher education, training or employment.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to indicate they have been in care via their college online application. This information will allow the Student Services team to contact applicants and ensure they are aware of the wide range of support available pre-entry and on-course.
The support offered is wide and varied and depends on each individual student and what is right for them, but broadly includes:
For students aged 15 to 26, the Time4Me mentoring programme is available to support a small number of students per year. Mentors help the mentees with goal setting, problem solving, resilience and communication. The young people taking part will gain confidence and develop skills which will help them with their studies, career and life goals.
Places are limited, so if you think having a Mentor could help you settle into life at Forth Valley College, please speak to your teacher, Learning Development Facilitator, or a staff member from the Carers Service in the first instance.
If you require further information, please contact the team at email@example.com
Students experiencing issues or a change in circumstances which may impact on their learning can access help from the College's Learner Advisers.
