Supporting Students
Course rationale:
A University is a busy and exciting place for students, but also a very demanding one. Staff in all areas are likely to come across students who can be overwhelmed or distressed and not know what to do or where to send the student for help. The health and welfare of students is everyone’s concern. This training is offered to accompany the booklet for staff which offers Guidelines on Supporting Students in Distress.
Course aim:
This course will help support and administrative staff to identify, respond effectively and refer on students in distress.
Course objectives:
  • Help staff identify distressed students

  • Explore possible responses to troubled students

  • Develop skills in dealing with difficult behaviours and attitudes

  • Gain information about how and where to refer students who may need specific kinds of help
  • Target group:
    Support Services' staff who may become involved with students who are distressed.
