As the R6 Student Support Advisor, I provide students the opportunity to access extra support either with me directly, a referral to in school services, such as counselling, or outside agencies. R6 is an inclusive and friendly environment and I enjoy being part of this. Some of the ways in which I can help students include a listening service, study skills sessions, assistance with applications and planning for next steps. I work closely with the R6 team and students to help remove barriers to learning. It is such a pleasure to see the students at R6 take up opportunities, build resilience and work towards their goals.
I am a non-teaching member of the sixth form, I work with the students to ensure they are registered, organised and making the most of their Independent Study time. I am the first port of call for parents and students as I am responsible for the calls coming into the R6 department and my office is based right in the middle of the Study Centre. I track and monitor behaviour data whilst working closely with the R6 team to ensure the students stay on track. A big focus of mine is attendance tracking and I am responsible for the set-up of early intervention if attendance falls below our expectations. This helps us develop strong relationships and ensure students make the most of their time at R6 to help with their future decisions.
