Advice and Pastoral Support

Our Student Services Team is located in the main reception area to offer information, advice and guidance for all Confetti students. Their office is open daily 8.30am – 5pm and operates an open-door policy during these hours. Our team is available to help with general enquiries, but can also offer information on specific areas of support, including:

  • Mentoring
  • Finance advice
  • Signposting
  • Confidential Support

This list is by no means exhaustive, and Student Services can discuss support available through Confetti, Nottingham Trent University and other agencies, where appropriate.
