Bespoke programmes for Teachers and Pastoral Staff

Bespoke programmes for Teachers and Pastoral Staff

GPE runs three-week course which introduces counselling and other pastoral staff from overseas universities to student welfare systems at UK universities. These systems are discussed in the context of student life in general, including admissions, accommodation, careers, disability, etc. By visiting several universities, delegates have an opportunity to learn about features of student welfare provision common across the UK higher education sector as well as practices distinctive to individual universities with their own ethos and structure. The programme gives delegates an opportunity to share ideas and research findings on student welfare, learn about some examples of good practice, and gain experience of UK culture.
