Why is it crucial to provide learner support services?

  • October 29 2018

Learner support services are crucial, not only for individual student progression and achievement, but also for supporting higher education institutions in their missions to all provide students with transformative and holistic learning experiences. At Middlesex University, the strategic step to formalise this support in the form of an independent department (CAS) has proved to be vital towards providing the complete student experience and this has been validated through the formal and informal feedback collected from staff and students who have acknowledged the role of this support towards improving retention rates and promoting academic success across the university.
