Tutor Training and Development

Tutor training is considered part of staff induction in order to offer high quality tutorial guidance and support for tutors in the College. Tutor observation and evaluation is undertaken to inform the progressive development of module tutors and tutorial programmes, and results in enhancement of teaching practice related to the tutor role. A well-planned tutorial programme impacts upon students’ sense of belonging, cohort identity, personal development and academic success. The role of the tutor is important and represents a ‘stable point of reference’ and an ‘anchor’ for students during their university experience. The role is key to students’ successful transition into Higher Education and throughout their programme of study to graduation and employment.
