Student Support

Being a student at ComCol is an inspiring and transforming time and we look forward to helping
you achieve your goals. 

What Kind of Support is Available?
Our students come first. Class sizes are small (10-15)
and our staff are friendly, supportive and approachable.
Each of our colleges offers support and guidance to ensure
that you maximise your career and personal development
opportunities. Specific assistance is offered in areas such
as programme selection, learning or pathway plans, job
search, employment associated skills and literacy and numeracy.

Who Are My Support Contacts?
Your primary support person is your lead tutor and the College
Recruitment Advisor is usually your second support person.
For support that falls outside the areas of your training and
personal development (for example any health, family or social
issues) these are best handled by appropriate agencies and their
trained staff. Each College maintains a relationship with these
agencies so we can refer you to them.

What Should I Do If I Have a Complaint?
Formal complaints should be addressed in writing to your
College Manager initially, then to the General Manager if
unresolved. If you are dissatisfied with the decision, there
are agencies available to handle your complaint depending
on your training programme type.
