Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

recognise when and why students might need socio-emotional support.

describe the role of teachers and other education staff in providing appropriate socio-emotional support for students.

demonstrate appropriate skills in responding to students experiencing difficulties, crisis or distress.

identify which external services students may need to be referred to and how such referrals might be sensitively approached.

critically evaluate their own professional practice when engaging with students requiring socio-emotional support.
