Tutoring: Support for New Appointees

Tue 26 Sep 2017


Tutors provide general oversight of student welfare, in the widest sense, and form an essential part of College communities and the Colleges’ provision to students. This course will use a mixture of formal presentations, group work and plenary discussions to provide new or prospective Tutors with advice and support for their students, a greater understanding of responsibilities and where to find information. There will also be presentations from the Disability Resource Centre and the University Counselling Service relevant to College Tutoring.

Please note that the term ‘Tutor’ as used at Cambridge does not refer to a teaching role.

Target audience
  • University staff intending to become a College Tutor
  • College staff taking on Tutorial duties
  • Further details regarding PPD's eligibility criteria are available
  • Documentation will be circulated shortly before the course
  • This will include a Guide to Tutoring and a number of case scenarios that will be discussed during the course
  • Participants should read this material prior to attending

Number of sessions: 1
