What is a Student Assistance Programme (SAP)?

A Student Assistance Programme (SAP) is a confidential programme designed to help young people deal with personal or student-related problems. The problems could be affecting your home life, education, health, and general wellbeing. Worcester Sixth Form College have teamed up with Health Assured to provide this service.

The SAP service provides a complete support network that offers expert advice and compassionate guidance 24/7, covering a wide range of issues. We strongly believe in providing an SAP service that offers not only reactive support when someone needs it but also proactive and preventative support to deliver the best possible outcomes. That’s why you can call at anytime, anywhere to access in-the moment support from one of our counsellors.
