College life can be challenging whatever your background, and especially for learners in care or leaving care. At the Northern Regional College, we recognise that all learners are individuals.

We can offer tailored support to meet your individual needs. Contact our designated contact at your chosen campus to discuss your needs, arrange a visit with your care worker or worker, or to chat informally about your study plans.

You may find it difficult to let us know that you are, or have been, in care. This is understandable, and you will not want to be treated differently because of your past circumstances.

As a college we would like to assure you that your information will only be shared with the designated contact for your campus, and this is to ensure that we target your individual support to your personal needs. Decisions to disclose information to any other person will only be taken with your permission.

Sorry, we don't have information about available courses. Visit their website for more details.
