Personal Tutor Scheme


Each School is required to put in place a structured scheme for the coordination of Personal Tutoring. The scheme will normally be coordinated by a Lead Personal Tutor, with administrative support offered via the School Office. A team of nominated academic staff, or Personal Tutors, will deliver the scheme each year. 

The responsibilities of a Personal Tutor are: 

  • to promote reflection upon and support for students’ general academic development while they are on their course;  
  • to promote other activities and experiences related to the personal, academic and professional development of their students;  
  • to appropriately support students through effective signposting to relevant student support services.  

Support and resources for Personal Tutors 

A new and updated Personal Tutor Guide 2021-2022 is available here. 

New Canvas content to enable the delivery of School schemes online can be accessed via Canvas Commons.
