Student Care, Support and Wellbeing

Fruition’s pastoral services allow for a holistic approach (Te Whare Tapa Whā) to supporting students to fully engage and succeed in their study. The concept of Te Whare Tapa Whā is overtly discussed to provide the learners with the language around the balancing of their four pou:

  • Taha Hinengaro – Mental wellbeing
  • Taha Tinana – Physical wellbeing
  • Taha Wairua – Spiritual wellbeing
  • Taha Wairua – Family Health

Support service goals focus on equitable access and proactive approaches. Provision for this programme includes support:

  • In critical instances (students in extraordinary need of support)
  • Bridging and/or scaffolding of students.
  • A “checkpoint” occurs with each student to touch base with how they are doing and plan any strategies to assist their progress. (Level 6 Diploma)
  • Where students may experience trauma and/or other challenges to their learning outside of academic matters Fruition will assist to broker any counselling (or extend other) service available.

Learner Voice

Each class will nominate a representative to advocate, lead and support their voice and views. The representatives will be invited to consult and contribute feedback.

The Academic Team offers workshops for Fruition’s learners to guide them in consultation and collaboration. They offer insight into governance and operational elements. The learner voice is gathered with a focus on procedures such as the complaints process and assessment design. Learners also have the opportunity to provide feedback through an evaluation form which covers various aspects of the programme of study.

Student ID Cards

Once your enrolment is finalised and your fees (if any) are paid, you’ll be eligible to get a student ID card. Your student ID card provides evidence of your enrolment and entitles you to a range of discounts e.g., transport, food, movies, retail shops etc. Visit the StudentCard Website for more information.
