You're now enrolled on your course at The City of Liverpool College! So, what happens next?! Dive in - this guide contains everything you need to get started as a City of Liverpool College student.
Adult short online courses
Thank you for choosing to enrol on a college online course. Whether you are returning to education after a break, upskilling in your current role or taking a new career path, our courses aim to fit around your existing commitments and allow you to develop your knowledge and skills. They’re also designed to challenge you to reach and achieve your full potential, as well as enhance your job opportunities following completion.
As one of the country’s largest further education colleges, we provide all of our learners with access to state-of-the-art facilities as well as a range of learning, financial and wellbeing support, details of which are outlined below.
If you need additional support or have any questions or concerns, email firstname.lastname@example.org who will arrange a call with you at your earliest convenience.
You’ll need your student ID card to access any of our buildings. Your student ID card must be worn at all times while you’re at College. ID badges will be available to collect from your main college campus on either your transition day or your first day in college.
Online short course students are eligible for financial support with childcare, but not eligible for other financial support.
For further information on childcare support click here or email Childcare@liv-coll.ac.uk.
Student Intranet and Libraries
MyHub is our very own student intranet. You can access MyHub at https://colc.sharepoint.com/sites/MyHub.
To log into MyHub, you’ll need your college email address and password, which you’ll find in the email we sent you with your Welcome Pack.
There is a Learning Resource Centre (library) in each college building. Information on the service, resources and access to the LRCs is available here.
Progress Leader Team
Across all five sites we have a Student Hub which houses Progress Leaders, Work Experience officers, Careers Advice and Guidance and the Welfare and Wellbeing team.
This is a central space for all students to come and request support and discuss opportunities within their student journey. All 14–19-year-old students will be allocated a progress leader within their study programme who will support and challenge them during their time in college, to ensure all students develop into their true potential whilst with us. Make sure you come and find us within your first week so we can introduce ourselves and tell you how we can support you further.
Student support and wellbeing services
As a City of Liverpool College student, you have access to a wide range of welfare and wellbeing services. Our Welfare and Wellbeing Team is here to support every student during your time with us. You can find out more about the support and services we offer by clicking here.
You can also access the Wellbeing Hub on our website, which provides full details of how we can help you.
Online learning support
As a student of our online learning programme, you will receive support from a designated tutor who will arrange to meet you regularly throughout your time on the course. These meetings can be face to face, by telephone or by Teams online, whichever is convenient to you. During these meetings you can ask questions as well as discuss and agree targets and actions to support your progress.
There is also an opportunity to consider any support you might need if you choose to either progress onto a higher level course or take part in any of our employment preparation sessions.
The City of Liverpool College Students’ Union (CoLCSU) is run by students, for students. It’s a place where individuals connect, have fun, build communities,share experiences and can influence change! Every learner at the College is automatically a member of CoLCSU.
