Student Support


Student Support is at the heart of our offer at the College and is located on the ground floor beside the main reception. We believe that student support is essential to a successful learning experience and our staff at Hartlepool College work to ensure that all students have access to the best possible guidance and support systems. Dedicated staff across the team offer a range of tailored support including financial/bursary and transport support, careers/progression and transition guidance, employer engagement activities, personal guidance, welfare, safeguarding, loans and higher eduction; ensuring each student reaches their full potential when studying with us. 

The menu on the left of this page will give you more information on Student Support, Careers, Welfare and SEN; providing relevant contact details and downloadable documents to assist and support your individual needs. Should you have any further queires please email

We're so committed to high support standards that we recently retained our Matrix Standard; a kitemark for quality Information, Advice and Guidance provision and were voted Number 1 Student Services Department in the UK in Further Education at the March 2017 NAMSS National Awards.
