Personal Development

Welcome to Suffolk New College, where Personal Development isn’t just a part of your education – it’s OUTSTANDING! Our mission is to help you grow not only academically, but also personally, preparing you for the exciting journey ahead.

Our Personal Development programme is designed to make your time with us enriching and fulfilling. 

Let’s break it down into the three core units you will study: Safeguarding, Living in Modern Britain, and ePass.


Learn about important topics like PREVENT, County Lines, Gangs, Knife crime, and Sexual Harassment.

It’s not just about knowing the risks; it’s about understanding how to keep yourself and our community safe.

and ePass

In these sessions, you will delve into ‘how money works’ – because who doesn’t want to master the money game? You’ll learn about inclusivity, embracing diversity, and creating a community where everyone feels valued and heard. And let’s not forget the skill of spotting fake news; in a world full of information.

It’s a journey that opens your mind, challenges your perspectives, and equips you with the tools you need to thrive in today’s diverse and dynamic society.
