As part of our learner support provision Scarborough TEC offers a counselling service which provides confidential guidance and support. Your counsellor will be a member of a professional organisation that has developed codes of ethics and practice.

Counselling is an opportunity to talk about any worries you may have. It helps you to look at your thoughts and feelings related to the problem in a safe and confidential setting, with a trained professional who will listen and not judge you. Counselling can help you to:-

  • Look at those areas in your life that are causing you stress.
  • Understand what existing support you have.
  • Discover what further support is available.
  • Develop a different way of managing problems.

Your counsellor will arrange meeting times with you, which normally take place once a week lasting 50-60 minutes. How many times you see a counsellor will depend on your individual needs and will be discussed during your first appointment.

If you have any questions please contact the Counselling Service on 01723 372105

We understand some of our learners will need financial help during their studies and depending on their situation we have a 16–19 bursary scheme in place that can help with things like travel expenses, equipment, childcare costs and trips..

In addition to this, to help our students even more we’ve also introduced an extensive package of benefits to replace the Government’s Educational Maintenance Allowance (EMA), which includes;

The Yorkshire Coast College Discount Card gives our learners access to an exclusive range of discounts in our area, from clothing to music and everyday essentials.
