Dan plays an essential part of our Student Support Team, with his role focused primarily on supporting our residential students. Dan shares his thoughts on how important the Student Support Team is for all our students:
"Our Student Support Team is an integral part of the College. We all work closely together to ensure that all students are looked after - whether that's academically, socially, or from a well-being perspective. My role in the resident team is to make sure all students achieve their full potential and feel supported during their stay with us."
