You are at the heart of all we do
Students are at the heart of everything we do and as such we make sure you have the resources to help you succeed.
At each of our colleges, we have a dedicated Careers Advisor, who can give you the careers advice, information and support you need to achieve you career goals. They can also help you with your CV and university application.
Our mentor scheme is designed to help identify and remove any barriers that might be stopping you from reaching your maximum potential by helping you increase your confidence and motivation. The mentors offer support with study skills, motivation, and time management techniques.
Help with the costs of studying – for qualifying students
We can help with the cost of travel (public transport), equipment costs and in some cases can offer meal allowances. Our student experience teams based at each of the colleges will be able to let you know if you qualify for support. If there is something we can do to help you – we will.
You can also study at university level with us!
If you need more support – we are with you every step of the way. We believe that high quality support is an imperative part of students’ success enabling every individual to reach their academic potential. The college offers a variety of inclusive support methods depending upon individual needs. We also offer support to students with SEND with their transition into college. If you declare you have an EHCP on your application form, you will be invited in for an interview with the SEND coordinator, for the site, to ensure that BMet can meet your needs prior to the curriculum interview.
Counselling service – taking care of you
We like our students to be supported as much as possible whilst studying at college. If you have a problem and friends and family aren’t able to help, counselling will provide you with an opportunity to talk and discuss your concerns or worries freely and openly – with a counsellor who won’t judge you or your issues. No problem is ever too big or small to bring to counselling and talking about how you feel can really help. After all, a problem shared is a problem halved!
Work Experience – Be work ready
If you study a vocational course, we will encourage you to complete 30 hours work experience. What’s more is that through our links with employers we will do our best to help you secure a place and give you the right opportunity to suit you. Work experience will help you to develop your skills in a real working environment – what better way to prepare yourself for the world of work?!
