ARC sessions are where SALIS students can get support in a wide range of areas vital to their success.
A is for Academic
The sessions provide support for students individually or in small groups, with guidance in subjects across the curriculum.
Students build confidence and generate new ideas, improving their success in the classroom.
R is for Remedial
Students are helped to identify how they can improve their learning habits.
Students gain and strengthen essential transferable skills like self-organisation, essay planning, effective revision, and time management.
Equipped with these tools, students are able to flourish.
C is for Coaching
Students benefit from tailored advice built around their individual needs and requirements.
This approach is not prescriptive, but rather helps students to develop the skills necessary to become more independent and responsible for their own learning success.
