Parents' guide | Weston College

Parents' guide

We always welcome your support while your son or daughter is with us. Through formal meetings, telephone calls or email contact, we value your input and feedback. As one of the top further education colleges in the South West, we have a wide range of excellent courses to suit everyone.

Our students aren’t left to fend for themselves. Our Student Welfare and Progression teams make sure they get all the help and guidance they need, and our experienced Tutors are dedicated to giving our students the brightest futures possible. But Weston College is about more than education. We develop the whole person through an individualised study programme which incorporates their course, English and maths development, employability sessions, tutorials, work experience, and much more... Our students have the chance to experience an exciting new atmosphere, meet new people and gain more independence.

Information before applying

We’ll give your son or daughter plenty of opportunities to find out about Weston College and the courses on offer.

Our specialist Student Progression team organises a number of events to give students information, advice and guidance on choosing the right course for them. They are also available for one-to-one guidance at any time during the year.
