Student Support Certificate
Faculty & Staff Professional Development
My name is Caitlin, I am the Student Conduct and Education Coordinator here at Trent. I also coordinate the Student Support Certificate for staff and faculty wishing to get further training about how to best support students.
The Student Support Certificate is a series of workshops geared toward academic and non-academic staff who have direct contact with students. These courses aim to enhance the capacity of Trent faculty and staff members to effectively assist students in a variety of situations, and to help create a supportive environment that builds students’ life skills and ability to cope with a range of issues.
Below you will find information regarding workshop content, date, time, location, and a registration link.
