Sixth Form Tutors
Students see their tutor once a day throughout the year. They are the first point of call with issues or queries and will play a major role in students’ time at Sixth Form. Their role includes:
Tutors are often a student’s first point of call for any issues and queries due to the daily contact. The tutor is concerned with the student’s academic progress as well as their personal well-being. The tutor is responsible for registering students once a day. In the morning students will be given key messages and complete tutorial programme activities based around PSHE/Pathways and Employability Skills.
The tutor will lead the Sixth Form Tutorial programme with students. In addition to whole year group activities, students will complete a programme of activities including discussions, debates and practical tasks based around key areas such as A Level Mind-set, British Values, PSHE, Numeracy, Literacy and Employability and Pathways.
The tutor will generally act as the supervisor for the Extended Project Qualification. Throughout this process they will lead sessions on independent study skills, meet with students regularly to review project progress and mark your completed project.
Most importantly, the tutor is the person who writes a student’s reference for University/Employment/Further Education/Apprenticeship applications. Tutors are well placed to do this due to their understanding of the strengths of students within their tutor group.
