At the start of their course your son/daughter will have been allocated a personal tutor who is responsible for encouraging them to make the most of their time at Nelson and Colne College.

During induction your son/daughter will have been set target achievement grades for their course. These are based on GCSE results, and are referred to as their MTGs (Minimum Target Grades). Their personal tutor and course leader will monitor their progress and agree an individual action plan with them, which will help them meet their targets and achieve their goals.

Students will be timetabled to meet with their personal tutor weekly in a group tutorial and also on a one-to-one basis regularly, to discuss their progress and ensure that they are achieving their full potential. We see this individual support as vital to your son/daughter’s success and we do expect full attendance so this can be achieved.
