New plans announced for welfare support


April 11th, 2016

The University has announced new plans to increase its provision of welfare support for students and staff. This comes as part of the changes being brought about by Project Transform and will be implemented as part of GoLive 3.

The new plans will provide a consistent level of welfare support across all Faculties, the number of FTE APM 3-4 roles increasing from 10 to 20 across UK campuses. The roles will be based at a School/Faculty level and line-managed directly by APM 6 staff within Student Services, providing additional management input to the provision of welfare support for both students and staff. A detailed proposal can be found on the Project Transform Workspace (login required).

Students will be able to access welfare support at a local School/Faculty level and, from September 2016, will be able to book appointments through the new Student Service Centres if they wish to do so. The new roles will also offer welfare support to staff.

“I’m pleased to confirm the new plans for welfare support,” said Chris Hulse, Director of Student Services. “The proposal has been developed in collaboration with the Welfare Network and Claire Thompson, Head of Student Welfare, and I look forward to working together to see the positive impact that these changes will have on both students and staff at The University of Nottingham.”

Recruitment for these new roles will be taking place over the next month and the role information can be found in the following locations:
