Student Support Officers

Our Student Support Officers will keep our students motivated and encouraged throughout their studies. They will provide activity monitoring, giving students friendly reminders to ensure they stay on track with assignment submission. In addition, they will give ongoing support to students, including an induction at the time of enrolment, to ensure students are familiarised with their new e-learning platform and have all the information, tools and resources needed to start their studies. Our support team will make sure students are submitting assessments regularly enough to graduate on time, and most importantly, they'll make sure they are making progress towards starting their new careers.

They have an excellent range of courses on offer, as well as superb customer service that made me feel welcomed and supported throughout my studies.

I spoke with Tamara, who was wonderful. She gave me all the information about the course and kept in touch right throughout the enrolment process.

Studying my theory online and at my pace allowed me to continue working full-time. The face-to-face component was amazing, working with an experienced instructor.

AIPT supported me from the moment I joined. Even through COVID times, they carried on and were always there for me if I needed anything.

Studying with AIPT allowed me to study while working 5 days a week and at university. It allowed flexibility while ensuring I received the best education possible .
