Personal Tutorials

All Homefield students on an education programme have a weekly personal tutorial that aims to support the student and oversee their journey through college life.

Tutorials are individual and delivered according to student needs and preferences, for example, using symbols to aid communication or chatting during sessions rather than a more formal meeting. Students are allocated a specific personal tutor who uses this one to one time to establish a close relationship which enables open and effective communication. It is hoped that a bond will develop between student and personal tutor so students feel they have someone to go to if they have any concerns.

Tutorials focus on physical and emotional wellbeing to ensure this isn’t having an impact on learning. An emphasis is placed on personal development including relationships with others and participation and engagement in activities. Time is also taken to review the timetable, finding out what the student enjoys and ensuring that sessions are enabling progress to be made. Personal tutors review progress against targets and objectives and towards the student’s medium and long term goals. Opportunities are taken to meet individual objectives and develop literacy and numeracy skills.

Personal Tutors gather information on student progress and well-being from others including tutors, individual support staff and parents/carers to enrich and inform the learner journey.

The personal tutor usually acts as a point of contact for parents/carers and this can also develop into a close relationship ensuring information is shared between both parties.

In addition to weekly tutorials the personal tutor will attend student reviews and write annual reports ensuring that their knowledge and experience makes a positive contribution to the college experience.
