Student Services

Lots can happen during your time at college and that’s why our Student Services team is on hand to advise and support you.


Our Additional Support Team can help you and your lecturers tailor support to meet your specific needs, including providing in-class or out-of-class support for literacy, numeracy and study skills, as well as individual and group support to develop social communication skills.


Social and communication skills are an essential part of everyday living and we have qualified and experienced lecturers on hand to teach social and communication skills in structured sessions and workshops.


At the campus we have our First Steps nursery, which is a commercial nursery, open to all. Charges are competitive and bursary support is often available to help with childcare costs.


We know that some students will require special arrangements when taking exams and support can be provided, post assessment, in accordance with awarding bodies’ guidelines. Dependent upon assessment results, scribes and readers may be supplied and assistive equipment may be borrowed.


The physical and mental wellbeing of all our students is extremely important to us, so we provide a number of support services. A nurse is available at Brinsbury campus. You can contact them at or by calling 07825 937018.

We also have drop-in services including Mental Health Team, Substance Misuse, MIND and NHS Health Checks, as well as a large network of trained first-aiders.


Designed for those who don’t have the opportunity to have a healthy breakfast at home, students can grab a quick, tasty and nutritious breakfast to set them up for the day ahead.

Our ACES Programme

Our unique ACES (Attitude, Choices, Employability and Skills) programme has been developed to cultivate your development and will be tailored to you, as an individual.

Delivered by our student tutors through a series of interactive workshops, it will guide you through your college journey as well as inspire and inform your future. It will cover a range of topical discussions, including environmental issues, relationships, respect and tolerance, personal wellbeing and social media. They will also work with you to cement your professional development.

Our mission is to prepare and inspire you to be a global citizen, curious about your world and ready to embrace your future.


Students experiencing emotional or personal problems, or who are distressed and have no-one to talk to, are able to access our counselling team for totally confidential support and advice. These professional services are available for free. You can contact the team on 01243 781424.

In addition, to meet the growing needs of our nation’s Children and Young People, Chichester College Group has been part of a group pioneering a UK-wide directory of qualified Children and Young people counsellors and therapists with TAC Access. Our students can use this exciting and powerful tool to select a professional they would like to work with either face-to-face or online.

Please note, funding for this service will need to come from external funds, e.g. parent/carer.
