Introducing Support Hub

Signpost Students To Suitable Support

Support Hub is an online directory containing information on thousands of external services including helplines, self-help resources, and support groups for any personal challenge or life event.

“As a large urban FE College with a community focus, we deliver learning and teaching to almost 17,000 students and support an incredibly diverse student population. We offer a range of bespoke support services and have partnered with NSN to provide our students with an accessible information service on support that is available on a local and national scale.

This is particularly helpful for students who are unsure of what support they need so they can search and discover services or they can look at available support information independently if they feel nervous about talking to a member of staff. It also reassures students that College staff are available to help too.”

Vetted And Accessible Support Options

Connecting Students To Trusted Support

Pastoral care and student support services may not be viewed as an option for some students especially outside regular hours or during weekends and breaks. Some students prefer resolving issues independently, seeking support from channels they find more comfortable. Support Hub enables that to happen.

“Once we had agreed the set-up was implemented very quickly and effectively. Support is provided on an on-going basis to ensure that if we see any potential for development or added value, it is quickly acted upon. There are a range of assets that are customised for us and this has allowed us to publicise the service for both students and staff.

Our experience tells us that students all have different needs and we have found that using NSN to complement our face-to-face support and internal online resources provides greater information on available support networks and services for our students.”
