Every student at HNC is supported via our Aspire programme. These sessions are designed to support students to prepare and plan for their future, and become well-rounded, responsible and resilient young adults who are ready for the real world.
Students experience a varied range of sessions from being supported to draft and submit a UCAS application to exploring the risks of vaping and the importance of using their voice by voting. In addition these sessions also underpin our Careers provision, opening minds to the opportunities available. In addition to ensuring students prepare a UCAS application, Aspire sessions also have a strong focus on employability skills.
Each Aspire group is led by a dedicated Progress Tutor, who is also the main point of contact for students and parents/carers. Students meet their Progress Tutor on a regular basis to discuss progress, their vision for the future and progress towards their goals.
Progress Tutors are also the main point of contact for parents/carers, and can be contacted with any concerns, or to update us if there is something happening in the home which may impact on a student within College. If you are a parent/carer looking to contact your son/daughter’s Progress Tutor you can identify who they are via your son/daughter’s timetable on CEDAR. You can also send an email directly to their Progress Tutor via CEDAR too.
