We are committed to providing support for all of our learners and as part of this we offer a number of personal, social and academic services whether you are 16 or above 19 or above or if you are a higher education student.
Careers advice and guidance
The College’s Student Support Officers are available to offer you professional advice.
Coming to College might not necessarily mean that you are going to be out of pocket. A range of financial assistance may be available throughout your studies.
The Student Support fund can help you to meet the costs of any books or equipment you need for your college course. If you live more than 2 miles away you could even qualify for a free bus pass!
Need help with childcare costs? Phone us in Student Services to find out if we can help. You can contact Student Services for further information and application forms.
Personal & Welfare Support
Student Support officers are here to help you as students overcome any barriers to learning you may have that are getting in the way of you successfully completing your course. Students can sometimes find the transition from school to College difficult and we are here to help with this.
We are also equipped to be able to offer you the right advice and guidance you need on any financial and welfare issues you may have.
To promote your health and well being and raise awareness in many aspects of life, we arrange various events throughout the year. These include:
College is about more than just a course, so alongside your studies you can also take part in a wide range of activities which will make your time with us even more enjoyable. The student enrichment programme aims to offer you the chance to take part in activities that you enjoy, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in college life. 5 A Side Football, Multi Sports, Driving Theory Workshops and Sign Language are just some of activities on offer at Tameside College for the coming year.
New activities are being planned all the time and we are now giving students the chance to complete The Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold award. You will also have the chance to put across your ideas for new events and activities that you would like to see at the college.
Most students become members of the Student Union and enjoy the advantages that this brings. Students on all sites will have the opportunity to elect a representative to Union Committees and take part in activities that they arrange. Contact Student Services for information.
