Pregnant Learners, Young Parents, and Carers

Pregnant learners and young parents

If you are pregnant or are a young parent, you will be entitled to any help the college can offer in order to help you balance the needs of college life with looking after your child.

Support can include flexibility on deadlines, priority for finance appointments and other measures to ensure that you are able to continue studying whilst pregnant, and after your baby is born.  This help is available not only for pregnant learners but also for young parents of both genders.

Care leavers and looked after children

  • £40 per week progress bursary
  • Priority for finance appointments and other help
  • Flexibility on deadlines, especially if you are moving house or placement.

If you are or have been in care, please contact us for more information about how we can support you.
