In Response To: courses for staff dealing with students problems (Richard)

Any help from anyone in the UK would be greatly appreciated with this one.

I'm looking for any courses or resources that would help any staff members who are named as the "go to point" for any students with personal problems.

We are a private language school for adults only, and a full-on English UK 6 month course for welfare and accommodation officers seems excessive for us at this point.

You didn't state what you mean by "personal problems," so it's unclear what courses or resources you think you require. But if it's very specific expertise, I suggest you hire two part-time employees with the type of skills and knowledge you believe you need and have them do a job-share as the go-to point person. Otherwise, look for companies/organizations that specialize in that type of intervention and have them do a needs assessment and potentially some on-site training for your employees.

I'm American and not in the UK, by the way.
