Student Support & Wellbeing

MITA Consulting endeavors to consider, promote, balance and respond to all aspects of the student, including their physical, social, emotional and academic needs and wellbeing.

MITA Consulting gives every student the opportunity to provide feedback at the end of each course in order for us to improve our delivery and better serve our customers. We also hold Trainee Forums, with an external facilitator in order to open the dialogue between students and MITA Consulting.
