Helping Ontario's colleges and universities enhance capacity to support student mental health and well-being

Campus Initiative

The Student Support Certificate

The Student Support Certificate is a series of workshops geared toward teaching staff (especially new instructors and teaching assistants) and non-academic staff who have direct contact with students.  These courses aim to enhance the capacity of Trent faculty and staff members to effectively assist students in a variety of situations, and to help create a supportive environment that builds students’ life skills and ability to cope with a range of issues. Another goal of this training is to educate Trent staff and faculty on the services and resources available to Trent students, and to know when and how to refer students to them. In order to obtain the certificate, individuals must take all five Core Series workshops, and a minimum of four optional workshops. Workshops are 90 minutes unless indicating otherwise. Workshops will be facilitated by Trent staff and faculty members. The workshops in the Core Series will be offered in the fall, winter and spring/summer terms. Supplementary workshops are scheduled to change each term.
