At Confetti, we’re all about keeping our students engaged and motivated in their learning. If there’s anything that’s stopping students from being able to work to the best of their abilities, we want to know about it! That’s why we have Course Representatives to keep us in the loop about anything we could improve around the campus.
You said…Concerns about the effect of reduced college contact time / lockdown on students mental health
We did…During this time we have implemented ‘Togetherall’ for students to access 24/7 support online, monitored by Mental Health professionals. The Student Services Team continue to facilitate drop in sessions and forums via MS Teams, as well as the full range of support services. Online Mental Health workshops have also been scheduled for Jan 2021 on the Events and Community MS Teams group.
You said…Students cannot always access the software they need (Adobe, Logic etc) and it’s very expensive to purchase for use at home
We did…For Windows applications, we have provided a remote access solution to be able to log onto Confetti workstations from home. Please talk to tutors or go to https://remote.confetti.ac.uk. For Macs, there isn’t an equivalent option, however students can look at alternative software for their own computers, e.g. Adobe, Reaper, Studio One, etc.
You said…Students feel more part of a community at Confetti rather than NTU
We did…Katya Senior – Confetti’s elected ‘Academic School Officer’ will be working to improve the below areas:
1. Raising NTSU’s presence on the Confetti Campus
2. Cross-course collaboration opportunities across the year
3. Ensuring Wed afternoons are kept clear for NTU events/societies
Confetti’s School Champion will be promoting NTU and NTSU activity to Confetti students. NTSU’s CEO and Confetti management will continue to regularly meet.
You said…Some students said it wasn’t clear where students can or can’t go to eat food during breaks (all sites)
We did…We ask that people using the café seating area have either food from the café or their own packed lunch. Students can however take food to the common room (behind CMG reception) or the Metronome bar area. Some classrooms are also allowing food to be consumed in them.
We are always happy to hear from our students with any issues they may be having around our campus, so be sure to talk to your Course Representative if you think anything needs fixing and we’ll make sure it gets sorted.
