In the last couple of weeks students across the country have been receiving their A Level and GCSE results. For those who have been successful, this could be the start of an exciting journey into higher or further education. If you are starting college or university soon then you may benefit from Advantage Healthcare’s academic support.

Before you begin your studies there are many things you will need to organise, such as accommodation, travel and your timetable. This can be a challenging time and you may require additional support. Advantage Healthcare’s academic support service is here for those who require a little extra assistance or have more complex care requirements whilst undertaking higher education.

Five ways academic support can help you

  1. Healthcare – our main priority is your health and well-being. We will provide you with all of the care you require in your own home. Meaning you may not need to worry about taking time off studying to manage your condition.
  2. Finding a course or place of study – we can assist you with your search for a course or university/college by accompanying you on open days and discussing with you your needs.
  3. Guidance with work – if you struggle with writing or taking notes due to a disability or illness then having somebody with you may help. They are by no means there to do the work for you, but to act as a way for you to get your thoughts and ideas onto paper.
  4. Day to day living – to help you get the most out of your education, we can help you with your day to day routines. This could be in the form of preparing meals for you, assisting with personal hygiene or helping you to get around your place of study.
  5. Socialising – as well as working hard during your education to gain vital experience and knowledge, it is important to enjoy yourself and grow as a person. Socialising with friends can be a big attraction for going into further education, and we can assist you on social events to support your independence.

We can provide support in most situations, covering long and short term, live-in care or daily care. Our Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Support Workers are carefully selected to ensure their skills are well suited to your personality and care requirements.

Our academic support covers more than just the classroom, we can be with you every step of the way to ensure you get the very best experience out of higher or further education.
