Student Services News

Posted 14th February 2018.


Student Services support lots of students with a range of various needs and problems. We also work in partnership with lots of organisations across Sefton and Liverpool so that we can signpost you to the right service to get you all the help you need. There should never be a barrier to you accessing education and moving forward with your future careers and life plans. Hugh Baird College mission statement is to inspire, challenge and transform lives. In Student Service we believe we can help you to do this even when you are not confident that you can succeed. Take a look at this Barnardo’s TV advert for some inspiration when your confidence is low.

Some of the work Student Service staff do to support students with their life beyond College is shown in the Pod Guide and Planner. There are various events running throughout the year that you can book onto by speaking to your SPC or visiting Janine Hopewell in Pod. These events are designed to support you with your personal development and enable you to stay healthy.
