Intensive Support (Safeguarding)

Safeguarding – Working together to ensure that we are doing everything we can so that learners, staff and visitors to our site are protected from harm and feel safe. The Government provides statutory guidance on how to achieve this in addition to local strategies and procedures outlined by the authorities we work very closely with. It is important to us that everyone who comes to the Grimsby Institute feels safe, supported and valued.

These are the numbers to call if you require immediate advice or support. You can also contact us via the safeguarding email address; [email protected].

The team are based in 0A02d and are available Monday to Thursday 8.30am – 5pm and Friday 8.30am – 4.30pm.

Success Coaches

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:

  • Worries about your course
  • Additional learning support needs
  • Friends and relationships
  • Health issues (physical, mental or emotional)
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Financial difficulties
  • Family and home issues
  • Plans for the future

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.

Counselling Service

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.
