Welfare and Support

The College takes pride in the quality of the teaching and pastoral care provided to its students. 

Student Welfare at DGHE is approached from a confidential and sensitive perspective. Although the vast majority of students at DGHE will not experience any serious welfare issues the College has a support system in place to offer students the help and guidance they may require during any period of hardship, stress or anxiety.

The service exists to ensure students get the most out of their time at College helping them engage more effectively in their academic and social environment and to be sufficiently free from psychological distress in order that they may achieve their full potential.

Additional Support

The normal practice encouraged throughout the College is in the first instance for students to approach their programme manager, who will listen to their concerns and if necessary refer them on to a Student Welfare Officer (SWO).

The Student Welfare Officer (SWO) in turn will then assist the student in resolving the issue in question or it is felt that professional help is required the student will be referred on to the relevant external organisation.

Each student has a Personal Tutor who helps guide the student through the course.

Individual Learning Plan tutor – Every school has an allocated member of staff that will meet with each student at least 4 times during their course to help students develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP). The tutor is there to help students to make the best of their time at DGHE and advise on their studies.  

In addtion, Student representives are responsible for providing feedback on various aspects of the College and the student experience to the College management. They are also expected to serve as advocates for a particular student or group of students when necessary.
