If you are a full-time student, you will have a personal tutor, who is usually someone who also teaches you.
This tutor will:
- Help you to set targets that you need to make progress through your course.
- Keep an eye on your attendance, punctuality and progress on your course
- Provide you with an induction into the College.
- Check if you need additional learning support to help you on your course
- Help you to develop good study skills.
- Write a reference for you when you complete your course.
- Listen to you if there are personal issues that you want to discuss and advise you of extra support you can have to address these issues; if you need help with a particular issue your tutor will probably know where you can get it.
- Organise an enrichment programme that will give you opportunities outside your course.
- Address issues you and your fellow students raise about your courses and the College.
- Meet with you regularly for a ‘1 to 1′ tutorial.
- Produce a written review of your progress at least 3 times each year – and send a copy to your parents/guardian if you are 18 or under or your employer if they have paid for your course
We believe that part-time students should be provided with support and feedback on how they are doing on their course.
If you are a part-time student you will have a tutor who will be someone who teaches you. As a part-time student you will receive the same support as a full-time student although you may not receive as many written reviews of your progress.
The tutor also acts as a ‘gateway’ to the support services that the College provides to help students with personal matters that may affect their studies.
You will be invited to meet your son or daughter’s new tutor within 3 weeks of the start of the course to give you a chance to find out more about College life and the course they are studying.
