Pregnant learners and young parents

If you are pregnant or 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 that of 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 you are pregnant, and after your baby is born.  This help is available not only for pregnant learners but also for young parents of both genders.
