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 streamlined Personal Tutor Guide 2018-19 is available here.
Guidance on communicating and meeting with Tutees can be found here.
Faculty-based training is offered annually (September) to existing / prospective Personal Tutors. The Personal Tutor Forum also meets annually in April.
