Student Support Services:
ECA College will assess the needs of individual learners during orientation using language, literacy and numeracy testing. Trainers will monitor students during class to identify any students who are struggling. They will be available for additional tuition and to clarify topics for those that require additional assistance.
Students can request additional mentoring sessions with their trainer, request learning support via email or ask for additional time after class to discuss issues they may have with their assessments. Where a student is experiencing learning or personal difficulties they should contact their Student Services Officer to discuss the issue and if a solution cannot be reached the student can be referred to the Student Intervention Officer or other counselling and support services for review and resolution.
ECA College also offers welfare and social activity programs including free events for networking with industry.
