Care & Welfare
Our Vice Principal and Year Tutor are both trained counsellors and qualified dance teachers who have an understanding and knowledge of the profession. They appreciate the difficulties young people can sometimes experience during their full-time training and perhaps their first time away from home.
Students also have a day-to-day Support Officer as well as a Housing Officer who looks after student accommodation and manages any problems that may arise.
To help students develop into caring, responsible young adults with all the skills needed to have a long and varied career, we offer continual support from a dedicated Student Support Team that includes a Remedial Therapist, Dietary Advisor, Year Tutors and a trained Student Support Officer. If students require outside professional help with medical or personal issues, one of the team will make provision for this to be given and support the student with college classes where required.
Induction week offers all students the opportunity to meet their support staff and prepares them for the journey ahead. Outside agencies including our local community police officers give advice and help students understand personal and community safety issues especially important for those who may be away from home for the first time.
Academic support is available on a one-to-one or small group basis for students who require additional assistance with the literary/study skills required for Integrated Professional Studies.
We recommend that all students join a private medical scheme and register with a local doctor upon arrival. SLP has physiotherapy facilities and treatment is offered at a reduced rate by a senior member of Leeds Physiotherapy Clinic, who visits twice weekly. We uphold equality and diversity and we have a zero tolerance policy for bullying and drug taking in or out of College. If you would like a copy of any of our policies please contact SLP college direct, they are also available to all students in the college library.
