The College is committed to protecting all students and staff and therefore has a whole organisational approach to Safeguarding. The College works in accordance with the regulations and specifications laid down by the Local Safeguarding Children’s Board (LSCB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA). Training and development is effectively built into the College recruitment and induction procedures, the staff development programme and is embedded into all college activities. Safeguarding is deemed to be the responsibility of all members of staff and Governors and appropriate training and development is mandatory.
At BCA, we believe that a student’s personal financial circumstances should not be a barrier to academic development. If you are experiencing financial issues, there is a range of Government-funded schemes that may be able to assist.
16-19 Tuition Fund
The 16-19 Tuition Fund is a sum of government allocated money given to colleges, schools and other 16-19 education providers to help mitigate the disruption caused to students’ learning by COVID-19. It is a one-off allocation for the 2020/21 academic year. Learn how we’re utilising the funds here.
Additional Learning Support
At BCA we recognise that our students come to us with a range of different skills, abilities and experiences. Additional Learning Support is available across the College to help students with evidence of declared learning needs.
Support and Advice
The College is committed to protecting all students and staff and therefore has a whole organisational approach to Support and Advice.
