Student Engagement and Retention

Student Services provides a ‘team around the learner ‘support intervention service across all our campuses aimed at supporting students who are struggling with their studies to overcome the barriers they face to their education and learning.

The support team is made up of staff from each of the following support departments:

• Widening Access • Safeguarding
• Careers
• Learning Support • Leaner Resources • Student Finance • Students Union

Students can access this service if tutors or teachers refer them directly via student services, or a student can contact the support team by emailing support@nwrc.ac.uk, to ensure maximum impact and guidance is provided.

We come together for the common purpose of improving the success of the student.

Head of Learner Services

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to NWRC. Our supportive team is here to make sure that your transition into college life is smooth and stress free, so to help you settle in as quickly as possible we’ve produced this Student Handbook which will give you an overview of the top class support available here at NWRC. Student Services is located on the ground floor of the Tower Building and our friendly staff are happy to help you with any queries.

In the meantime, I am very much looking forward to hearing about your success and experiences through our student voice initiative.
