Student Support

St Helens Chamber offers support to all of its students so that they can achieve their goals and fulfil ambitions.  We want our students to achieve to the best of their potential.

You will have a named member of staff who will offer you pastoral support which means they will help you to get support for the following if you are eligible.


We deliver a wide range of courses and financial support is different for each.

It is always worth speaking to the person who enrolls you onto a course to see if there is any financial support to help with travel etc.

Learning difficulties and/or disabilities

All of our staff are skilled at supporting students who may have learning difficulties.  For many of our courses, we carry out initial assessment so that we know what type of support to offer.  For example, we have specialist software to help those who are dyslexic.

Physical difficulties and/or disabilities

Our buildings are all accessible to everyone including wheelchair users.  All have accessible toilets.  We have lifts to all floors and Starting Point has a hearing loop.

Mental health difficulties and/or disabilities

Your named member of staff will be able to offer support for any issues that you may face which affect your time on our courses.

St Helens Chamber works in partnership with over 100 local agencies.  This means that we can tell you about the help that they can give you and arrange for you to visit them, if you wish, so that you can get their expert support in a whole range of issues eg housing, debt, substance misuse, caring etc.
