Your health and well-being is very important to us, which is why we have lots of support in place if you need it.
The first point of contact for students is our Student Services team. The team is experienced, helpful and friendly and will always treat your questions or concerns will always be treated with respect and confidentiality.
Student Services can help with a range of topics including finance, health and wellbeing, learning difficulties, personal issues and anything else relating to your life or study at Brock.
If things get on top of you, we have experienced and qualified counselling staff who can listen to your worries in a confidential environment, and offer support to help you to move forward.
Problems you may wish to discuss could include eating disorders, drug use, bereavement, sexuality, relationships, depression or any other issue you may be experiencing.
Skills Development & Learning Assistants
We offer advice and support for students who might require additional help with their studies. This may include help with study skills such as time management, organisation skills, exam revision technique, coursework support or literacy.
Specialist tutors can also offer assistance across the full range of curriculum areas. The one-to-one support is friendly and confidential. In some cases, assistive technology can be provided to support specific needs; the team will also assess for special exam arrangements.
The Learning Assistant team at Brock are fully trained professionals. There is learning assistant support on courses at Foundation Level and Level two. In a small number of cases, individuals can be allocated one-to-one learning support if there is a specific need (for example, physical mobility, visual impairment).
Disabilities & Learning Differences
Your needs will be assessed prior to joining us and any necessary adjustments will be put in place for your timetable of study.
If you have physical, sensory or other support needs, please contact our Special Needs Co-ordinator who will be happy to discuss your requirements with you.
The Reflections Room
Brockenhurst College is committed to treating people of all faiths fairly and to enabling employees and students to have access to prayer and worship facilities, or quiet contemplation, where practicable.
The Reflections room is available as a ‘quiet’ space which can be used by people of all faith groups, beliefs and for those whom religion has no particular significance in their lives. The room may equally be used as a quiet space for people to sit and contemplate, to pray, or to recover from a traumatic life event, such as bereavement.
The Inspiration Room
We have a specially-designed ‘Inspiration Room’, which is staffed by members of the learning assistant team.
This pleasant facility is available for students on the autistic spectrum and for other vulnerable students who might benefit from a quiet space to work and study.
