FW: Promoting Student Engagement, Belonging and Purpose: developing Excellence in Personal Tutoring… The Third National Tutoring Seminar: your invitation


  We are now pleased to provide full details of the third National Tutoring Seminar on the theme of Promoting Student Engagement, Belonging and Purpose:  developing Excellence in Personal Tutoring…, which will take place on 26th October, 2016 and be hosted by the University of Central Lancashire, Preston. 


Given the emerging national context, the seminar will seek to:

  • Firmly locate Tutoring and Advising Practice in the 'Excellence Agenda' from a range of perspectives:  Sectoral, Institutional, Departmental and Student. Participants will leave with an appreciation of thinking, resources and frameworks which can be utilised to ensure that effective and excellent practice in student support and guidance is fully developed and represented in the TEF.
  • Showcase innovative thinking and practice from across the sector.


  • And provide the initial workshop for the second cohort of the CRA/SEDA Professional Development Award in Personal Tutoring and Academic Advising, which is currently only available via this route.


Full information is attached, together with a range of booking options:


A. For the Seminar alone.

B. For the Seminar and Registration for the SEDA Professional Development Award in Personal and Academic Tutoring. Those opting for this will be invited to attend the extension Portfolio workshop to initiate their work on the Award. 

C. For the Award alone.


For options B and C the Award can be undertaken as an individual or as a member of an institutional cohort (3-6 staff) with mentoring support either from CRA staff or, subject to a formal MoU) by institutional staff.  In either case the fee meets all support and accreditation costs associated with the Award-no further fees are payable.


Given the date of the seminar the closing date for signing up to the Award has now been extended to 26th October 2016.


If you'd like to discuss any aspect of this please do not hesitate to get in touch.


We look forward to hearing from you.



With best wishes
