Students’ Wellbeing

Staying well and looking after your health

Protecting students’ mental health and wellbeing is a priority at BAEC. We recognise that many students are facing additional mental health challenges and we  encourage them to stay in touch with their tutor, fellow students and the BAEC safeguarding team.

The Dedicated Safeguarding Lead is Elena Diaconescu and the Deputy Safeguarding Lead is Tano Bellone

Social support is valuable for mental health and wellbeing during this challenging time. Many groups have created private social media groups to exchange news and keep up with their learning.

This is a great way to keep in touch and always be up to date with latest developments. Please keep in mind the need for online safety and refrain from sharing private information or personal details, unless you have permission from others, and everybody in the group agree to such communication.
