Collaborative Engagement and Retention Team

The Collaborative Engagement and Retention Team (CERT), based within the Schools, Colleges and Community Outreach department, works in partnership with Academic Schools and Professional Services to design, develop and implement interventions that enhance the engagement, retention and progression of students at Nottingham Trent University.

In 2017/18, CERT will focus on a number of new initiatives, including:

  • A peer support scheme, providing all first year undergraduate students with a higher year CERT Student Mentor
  • Matriculation events, run as part of course induction to welcome first year undergraduates to their new academic community

Closely linked to Success For All and OFFA, CERT helps to build strong course communities and increase engagement with university services and opportunities, in order to further support the personalisation and improvement of the student experience.
