York College Intensive Personal Advisers work with students who have personal needs or are in vulnerable categories which put them at risk of leaving college.
Updated 20th March 2019
York College Intensive Personal Advisers work with students who are facing various problems and barriers which means they are at risk of leaving college. This includes students who have family and financial problems, are sofa surfing, potentially homeless or are already living independently. Students who are pregnant, young parents, young carers, care leavers, those with learning difficulties, substance misuse issues or a mixture of the above.
One to one support from the college Intensive Personal Advisers enables students to address issues and access internal or external specialist support.
If you are in distress and there is no one in the College you can speak to, call The Samaritans on 116 123
