Supporting students in AHSC

In this case study Hazel Flight, AHSC within the FOHSC explains how they are working to ensure effective student communications.

“We are using collaborate, not just to teach, but to have catch ups.  I have a weekly catch up with each year group. This is optional for the students to attend, and give me the opportunity to check on how they are doing. Importantly it is not a teaching session, but a time when they can see each other, virtually, and ask any questions or raise any concerns”.

She continues: “As from this week I will be holding these monthly throughout the summer, for all three year groups”.

In addition “Most of us have also set up microsoft teams and so students can have the option of meeting up on line, a phone call or email contact”.
