We offer support on educational issues to any learner or member of staff at MFT. This may include:-

  • Providing on-site support to learners/staff with educational concerns/queries
  • Information on the completion of learner paperwork
  • Support with the failing learner
  • Support with learners requiring reasonable adjustments
  • Information on supervisor/mentorship/educator courses
  • Information on university curriculums/requirements
