AVETA Student Support Services (Assisting Students)

AVETA’s Student Support Services will assist students by having discussions with them about issues that are affecting them, so that the student is in the best position to achieve their educational outcomes during the period of their enrolment. During these discussions students will be provided with an opportunity to express their concerns within a supportive environment. These sessions may lead to insights and clarity of issues for the student so that they can reduce any discomfort and anxieties they may be experiencing and as a direct result can get back on track to achieving their academic goals.

Students may express any of their concerns which could include but not limited to:

  • Mental health issues (such as stress, anxiety and depression)
  • Relationship issues
  • Loneliness
  • Grief and/or loss
  • Addictive behaviors
  • Sexual harassment and/or abuse
  • Family or domestic violence
