Your Personal Progress Coach
To support your personal and professional journey, you'll have a dedicated Progress Coach throughout your time at Franklin. Your Progress Coach is not just your guide; they’re your ally during your time with us. They'll assist you with your university UCAS application process and, if this isn’t for you, your progression journey from Franklin - whether that’s higher education, training or employment.
At Franklin we understand university isn’t for everyone, but we want to ensure you’re supported to wherever your journey may take you. We provide valuable interview techniques and offer academic and pastoral support whenever you need it. With a Progress Coach by your side, help is always within reach.
