ELATT | Wrap-Around Student Support

Wrap-Around Student Support

When events take over your life, study can become hard. That’s where our wrap-around support comes in.

“Staff see their roles at ELATT as more of a ‘vocation’ than a job. This means that learners enjoy a wrap-around IAG service that maximises their chances of successfully achieving their goals.“

Matrix Standard Report, 2022

At ELATT we understand that events can take place in your life that makes it difficult to focus, concentrate or even continue on your studies with us. Our aim is to help you overcome these issues in your life so that you can stay on course, improve your skills and flourish in life and work.
