Student Services

 

On your first day at Techtorium, you will attend an induction which will guide you through your new environment, introduce you to Techtorium staff and to all the student services available for you.  At Techtorium, we want all our students to be successful and achieve their best

Admissions and Administration

 

  • Support students by ensuring they have the administrative information they need
  •  Maintain up to date, accurate information regarding all aspects of student engagement including attendance, pastoral notes, processing assessment results, creating transcripts etc
  • Ensure the college meets its statutory obligations to the various external agencies

Pastoral Care

 

  • Open door policy for anyone who needs someone to talk to
  • Identify students with a disability or health matter
  •  Ensure academic staff are fully briefed and updated via Student Services Meeting
  •  Refer students to necessary outside agencies
  • Support International and Domestic out of town students to settle into life in Auckland as well as support
    Auckland students with any issues around obtaining accommodation, bank accounts, drivers licences,
    networking as well as attendance, personal or any other issues that may arise

Comm’s Meeting

 

  • Those meetings provide a forum for students  and Techtorium management to share ideas or concerns they
    may have
  • A student from each class represent their peers and take turns leading the meetings
  • Students initiatives include the organisation of end-of-term celebrations and other student activities

Tutor Group

 

  • First contact with students on a daily basis to discuss any small issues that may arise and keep in touch regarding their attendance or any other issues that may affect their learning
  • We use the VARK guide to learning style which assess if the student is a visual, oral, reading or kinesthetic type of learner.
  •  When a student is falling behind in his assessments or class work, Techtorium will set a RAP – Remediation
    Action Plan. Both the student and the trainer will agree on milestones to achieve in order to catch up with
    any outstanding work. The student will benefit some one-on-one tutor time outside of class time. When
    required, collaboration with the Student Support Team can be arranged to assist the student in achieving
    academic requirements
