Young Minds launch messenger service
Young Minds is a charity aimed at supporting mental health in the under 25’s, it is making a big impact nationally and has just opened a crisis messenger service.
Any young person can text YM to 85258 to be connected to a trained volunteer 24/7.
It is not just for suicidal thoughts it can also be used in instances of self harm, bullying or general mental health issues.
The College is aware that the behaviour of a minority of students
is occasionally causing issues on transport to and from College. The
College is working with our transport providers to identify any individuals
concerned, so that they can face the appropriate disciplinary sanction.
We would like to remind all students that the code of
conduct applies to all college environments [including buses] and that any
behaviours, wherever they occur, that bring the College into disrepute would be
classed as gross misconduct.
If you witness such behaviour, please make the Student
Administration Team aware, so that the small minority of people can be
appropriately dealt with.
Welcome to the new 16-17 Saver Railcard, offering you the highest ever discount on rail travel- meaning you can still get half price train tickets! The new 16-17 Saver is now on sale online and offers 50% off most rail fares for anyone aged 16 and 17 years old.
For only £30, the 16-17 Saver is valid for one year or until your 18th birthday (whichever is earliest) and discounts will be applied to standard Season, Anytime, Off-Peak and Advance tickets for travel on the National Rail network, except on ScotRail or Caledonian Sleeper services.
Students will require their student id as their personal login to access their questionnaire – (as identified in the target list attached)
Once accessed, students must complete and finish the whole of the survey as the system will not save part completion of a survey and will not allow learners to re-enter the survey later once log-in details have been used – if the student gets a message ‘survey full’ or similar, it indicates the survey has already been accessed using the student id
To be completed by all FE New learners in September and October 2019

USB Memory Sticks - Hints and Tips
Don't let your memory stick be the only copy of your work.
USB sticks do break and fail, plus you can lose them!
Ideally keep a copy of your work in your College Home area (H: drive), we back it up each night.
Use your memory stick as a means to fetch your college work to and from home.
Remember to name your memory stick, if you lose it in college we can then identify the owner
Plug in the memory stick
Open File Manager
Click on the memory stick (Removable Disk) then right click and select Rename
Type in your own name and press enter
Help the College keep the Campus safe for everyone
We would like to remind all students that they must wear their lanyards at all times whilst on the college site. In certain practical sessions there are exemptions, but you must be wearing your lanyard once you leave that session. There will be ongoing regular lanyard checks indoors and outside, so please make sure you and your friends are wearing them.
Behaviour at College
Selby College expects the highest standards of behaviour from students, both inside and outside college. We are situated in the middle of a housing estate and therefore expect students to be courteous, considerate and to show respect to neighbouring residents. Revving car engines and using car horns within the car parks is not acceptable behaviour and will not be tolerated.
