Student Support

Here at West Kent College, we offer the highest levels of support with a dedicated team to help on a range of issues.


The College counselling service provides short, fixed term interventions for students who are experiencing barriers to learning because of emotional or mental health issues. The service is completely confidential and covers a wide range of issues, such as personal problems, stress or study worries.  For those students who do not want to see a counsellor face-to-face, we offer a range of options including telephone and group sessions.


Health and Wellbeing

A range of health and wellbeing activities are held each year incorporating sessions on relationships, sexual health, stopping smoking, drugs and alcohol awareness, healthy eating and lots more. The College also has a range of support mentors who can help if you are experiencing personal difficulties that are affecting your studies.


Handbooks and Guides

Each year we produce a number of handbooks and guidance booklets to help and support you during your studies with us.
