Non-Medical Helper (NMH) Information for Assessors

To ensure that students receive the highest quality support while studying at Cardiff Met, a team of in-house specialists, including Specialist 1:1 Study Skills Tutors and Specialist Mentors are available.

All Band 4 Specialist Access and Learning Facilitators are able to meet the needs of a majority of our students as they have a full working knowledge of Cardiff Met's processes and systems and have access to dedicated rooms across our sites.​

As part of Cardiff Met's commitment to supporting students the NMH package also includes a range of Support Assistants (Band 1 and 2) funded by the University where support is no longer funded through DSA.
