Communicating with Parents
Our mission is to offer exceptional education and training for every learner to improve their career prospects. We want to continually improve how we help our students to be successful and parental / carer involvement is an important success factor for many of our students.
Your feedback would be appreciated through the online survey available here. We will collate all responses to inform how we communication with parents / carers in the future.
Being Safe Online

Learn to Live
Students may have taken part in ‘Learn-2-Live’ activities in college about safe driving. This is a hard-hitting but well received activity. Students will be fully supported as part of the process and informed before the sessions so that they can share any concerns too. There are also parent resources available here: https://learn-2-live.org.uk/news/detail/learn2drive-with-learn2live-parents-event. As well as helping students to be safe on the road, it also offers tips on reducing insurance costs and buying a car.
