Success Coaches are here to help you with any aspect of your student life, including any issues or concerns that you may have.
A Success Coach will be allocated to every full-time learner and will be responsible for assisting with pastoral support, academic progress and overall welfare while offering guidance throughout your time at Grimsby Institute. All learners will have regular meetings with their Success Coach to review progress and set targets
that will help towards both short-term and long-term goals. These meetings are also a good opportunity to discuss any additional support that you may require and can include:
Success Coaches can also support learners with their chosen progression route, whether that is continuing further education, applying for university, apprenticeships or employment. Your Success Coach will deliver weekly group tutorial sessions for your class, which will cover a wide range of topics relating to your personal development.
We have a dedicated counsellor who offers all learners access to a confidential counselling service, covering all aspects of mental health and emotional wellbeing. If this is something you feel you may be interested in, then please contact 0800 315 002.
