At HCA, we aim to support our students however we can. Your wellbeing is important to us.

We have developed our own tutorial provision specifically to help you: build resilience, cope with the pressures of life while studying and prepare you for the world of work.

We understand that college life can be challenging, and that personal issues may sometimes get in the way of your studies.  So, if things ever get difficult, you can access our wellbeing services. We have a team of staff to support you, from your personal tutor, to our wellbeing development officer and college councillor.

The  independent counsellor, based on site at the College Road campus, is available to all students and provides advice and guidance for both FE and HE students.  The counsellor will discuss any issue large or small, and can also advise, signpost, and support areas such as mental health and relationships. They are able to refer students to outside agencies where necessary and support individuals in a safe and confidential environment.

We also have a large wellbeing space where we hold regular workshops and seminars to promote all our students’ health and wellbeing and give them skills and proactive strategies to keep well and happy.
