WELCOME TO YOUR STUDENT'S UNION
Unlike other training providers we don’t simply sell courses, we create communities of learners who can support and serve each other. For many of you university was not simply a place to learn it was somewhere you learnt to live. Studies were important, but the social side of student life was every bit as important. Studying together, socialising together, and stressing together was all part of the experience. Often after university we have to continue to study but its never as much fun. We believe that it should be, so at Sterling Healthcare Academy we don’t just bring you courses we bring you community.
ITS YOUR UNION ITS YOUR SPACE
The Union is an on-line space run by students, for students, to help one another, to organise events and to support study. You decide what you want to do, when we do it and where. No matter who you are, where you’re from, what course you are studying with us you are part of a learning community. The Student’s Union ids more than just a few student pages, it is here to link you with other learners and get students talking and working together. It is also here to represent you and your views, about our courses, or services and how we can make them better. It also gives you a voice in the wider healthcare sector were we act as stakeholder.
Academy Staff have developed and run a range of events each month, these are mainly training and education related. So this space is your chance, to organise and promote the more social and more fun sort of events. We believe people learn best as part of a community, and since much of our training is on-line it is good to get some real time interaction. From a coffee and a chat to a charity event or sports event its always more fun to do it together.
Many of our students are international and have come to Northern Ireland to live and work for the first time, so lets learn together. Our student services are self help services with questions or problems posted on-line, and advice and ideas given by staff and fellow students. As our student body grows so will the social aspect as we support each other.
There are a number of ways in which Student Services are focused on helping students achieve the best learning experience possible. It is an on-line peer support program for any student who needs guidance, a pointer, support or ideas. Our ethos is one of a learning community, a family where those who have gone before can help those coming after them.
Acting as the first port of call for students, the site offers a place where advice, notes, offers and other hints and tips can be posted. At the Academy we link in with external agencies in the local community, encouraging them to develop their services with students in mind.
