Staying And Achieving Objectives

Group training

First Level Support: Learning groups

  • Part of the curriculum => compulsory
  • For every first year student
  • Group sessions (15-20 students per group)
  • Teacher = personal coach
  • Target & aims:
    • Improve study skills
    • Increase motivation
    • Problem solving
    • More personal contact with the teacher. The teacher is now more like a coach whom the students can ask for help when they experience problems. He will help them so that they can improve their problem solving skills by making them aware that a problem doesn't get fixed by itself.
    • Sense of belonging to a group - group bonding.

Individual training

Second level support: Student Guidance Centre

Students for whom the initiatives inside the curriculum are insufficient can get extra support at the Student Guidance Centre.

  • Individual or semi-individual approach
  • Based on demands and questions of the student
  • Contextual approach (developed by Iván Böszörményi-Nagy)
    • Key elements are trust, recognition on a deeper level than compliments, loyalty and mutual support
    • Student is seen within his whole context (family, friends, school, work etc.) because his context will influence his behaviour, his wellbeing and so on
  • Personal approach
    • Everything that the student is carrying may influence his study success. Student counsellors need to be aware of all of these influences during the counseling (see also contextual approach)
