What is Student Advocacy?

Student Advocacy is a free and confidential service available to all students.

There are guidelines in the college policies for academic concerns such as requesting an extension of time for an assignment, requesting a review of an assessment result, or to appeal a decision. Your student advocate can help you navigate these policies. Your advocate can also act as your support person in any meeting you may be required to attend. Throughout the process, your advocate acts impartially, independent from CHC decision makers.

Student Advocacy is to guide, support and help students:

  • Understand the intent of CHC’s policies and processes as they impact students
  • Navigate academic rules, policies, processes and procedures
  • Obtain fair and equitable treatment, always acting in students’ best interests

For information about advocacy, email studentadvocacy@chc.edu.au or call Student Services on 07 3347 7993 (if unattended, please leave a detailed message). OR Fill out the online form HERE.

HEALTH AND WELLBEING

When you study at CHC, we want you to thrive in every aspect of your life, not just your studies.

We’re committed to nurturing your academic, professional, emotional and spiritual growth. We understand life doesn’t always go to plan. If you’re facing unexpected circumstances, we’ll work with you and liaise with staff to determine the best way to move forward. You can be confident bringing your concerns to us, knowing we’ll do whatever we can to help.

COUNSELLING CENTRE

CHC houses its own counselling and support centre where anyone in the community can access high-quality counselling services. We believe everyone can benefit from counselling. While our trained counsellors can help with specific life issues, they can also help you thrive in life by identifying what you want and discovering a path to get you there. It’s a safe, judgement-free space where you’ll be valued and cared for.

Current CHC students can access these services for free and be counselled by our student counsellors. Having completed the majority of their course work, our student counsellors are thoroughly trained in a variety of counselling therapies and techniques.

They are mentored by academic staff and closely supervised by registered counsellors, so you only receive the highest-quality care. You don’t need a referral, but all of our sessions are by appointment only. We can organise after-hours sessions under special circumstances.

To book an appointment (sessions are by appointment only), contact our counselling centre:

Phone   07 3347 7972
Email     counselling@chc.edu.au

Or fill out our online booking form HERE

Counselling is provided to CHC students free of charge and members of the public pay $20 per session if you see a Counselling prac student. This is an affordable option. Prac students have completed the majority of their training and have regular mentor and supervision sessions with an experienced practitioner. If you prefer to be referred to a private practitioner using our rooms then you pay the fee charged by that particular practitioner.
