The safety of our students at Hartlepool College of Further Education is paramount to us and we are committed to the safeguarding and welfare of all students. In order to support all learners, we have a dedicated Safeguarding Team of trained professionals who can offer advice and guidance.

Safeguarding Team (Student Success Coaches):-

Please speak to a Student Success Coach if you have any worry or concern whether that be about yourself or another student.  No matter how big or small you concern is, the welfare and safeguarding team can always help.

Also, don’t forget we can also make referrals to external counselling services after a student has had a 1:1 assessment or chat with a member of the Safeguarding team who will offer face-to-face sessions in the College setting. If you would like further information on this, please speak to a member of the Safeguarding team, based in G11.


Whatever course you choose, you'll get the highest level of training from specialist tutors, benefiting from their knowledge and experience of working not just in education but also in industry.
