Support & Wellbeing

Student Support, Guidance and Well-being are our top priorities. We take pride in our student support, guidance and wellbeing, complemented by our ethos that every student is an individual. OBC team is committed to the College’s mission statement “to provide each learner with the most positive learning experience.”

We ensure students at any campus of the College get a supportive and responsive experience from the initial inquiry to completing a course and progression within or outside the College. This demonstrates our commitment to provide support for inclusive, high-standard students services which in turn provide students with a foundation for high achievement.

Our students’ changing needs and their varied reason for learning guide our approach to providing innovative learning opportunities from entry-level to higher learning that promotes individual progress. The College is committed to helping its student’s Academic and Professional Development (APD).
