In addition to improving academic success, the service offers counselling and career aid. In this case, students will receive guidance on numerous career paths depending on their interests and strengths. This will help students imagine and choose appropriate careers and will give them advice on how to set meaningful and realistic professional goals. Additionally, the services will instruct clients on how to write an appealing curriculum vitae, how to respond to interview questions etc.
The activities of the student support services unit will be divided into four major areas .These areas are:
The Career Support Unit
This division will focus on giving students services that will help them advance in their jobs. This will be achieved by providing them with career guides and assisting them in selecting appropriate career pathways. Based on an assessment of the kids' academic performance and extracurricular talents, appropriate career advice will be provided to the pupils.
In order to prepare students for life after graduation, frequent workshops on CV writing, presentations, and interview tactics will be offered. Additionally, students will receive details about job positions, potential links with industry, and advice on how to create strong applications.
Learning Support Unit
The goal of this section is to raise students' academic performance. Here, students will participate in workshops covering the English language and academic writing, as well as proper sentence construction, punctuation use, and sentence patterns. Students may also receive assistance with mathematics, as many students struggle with this subject.
Additionally, frequent training sessions on digital skills like using Google Drive, Microsoft Office, and email can be organised. Given the present technology trend and how the world is moving toward digitalization, this digital skills training will be essential. Students and faculty members will also be given instruction in critical thinking, citing sources, and avoiding plagiarism in order to improve their research techniques.
Students will primarily receive advice on personal issues like money, housing, and motherhood in this area. The unit will advise Learning Support Unit, for instance, if there are financial issues.
This section's objective is to improve students’ academic performance. Here, students will take part in workshops on academic writing, the English language, effective sentence construction, punctuation usage, and sentence patterns. Additionally, because so many pupils have difficulty with math, they may also receive help in this area.Additionally, it is possible to schedule regular training classes on computer applications including email, Microsoft Office, and Google Drive. This digital skills training is crucial given the current technological trend and the way the world is becoming more digital.
Help Desk Unit
It will be the responsibility of the support desk to address any questions from college students. It will respond to questions from students about studying, signing up, associations, and the resources available to SUNO students.
Outcomes and Indicators of Achievement
The Student Support Unit improves student academic performance and enhances the personal well-being of students through guiding towards suitable careers which will improve their employability. This will, in turn, improve the status and ranking of the university.
SUNO's student support service section is useful and necessary for student development and academic advancement. Students' academic achievements, employability, creativity, and personal well-being will benefit from the services and resources made available to them. Those beneficial effects will be realised because students will receive help and guidance in areas that would ordinarily impede their studies. They will be inspired and encouraged since the support services will unveil to them that they are not alone and that the institution supports them personally and intellectually.
