ACPE is proud of its strong sense of college community. Our Student Services department is responsible for providing services and activities that encourage interaction between students, and help them to maximise their enjoyment of college life. Student Services staff are based on campus and are available throughout the week to assist students in any way they can.
Services offered to students include:
ACPE is committed to the health and wellbeing of students. The ACPE counselling service operates on a weekly basis throughout the year. The counsellor is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The counsellor can help you with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, grief and loss, exam and study stress, and general support. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for appointments and further information.
ACPE is aware that personal issues may impact upon a student’s capacity to study and complete required assessment tasks in a semester. When such issues arise, our support facilities offer help, hope, and encouragement.
The Student Representative Group (SRG)
The SRG gives students another opportunity to build their leadership skills. Members are elected from the student body with the aim of having representatives from each year and degree group. Student Services meets with the SRG each fortnight to discuss news and information that should be passed to students. Conversely, the SRG serves as an important voice for the student body.
ACPE Student Services is here to help you understand and develop your future career. Student services and our Professional experience office offer you career skills development sessions covering career planning, resumé writing, networking, presentation and communication skills.
