Who should attend?

Designed for staff who are (or will soon be) personal tutors, this one-day workshop helps new tutors prepare themselves for this important role and provides them with information about how they can best support their tutees. There are opportunities for participants to discuss issues of particular interest or concern.

Please note that this workshop is provided in the context of Imperial College practice and policy. For this reason we normally only accept Imperial staff or NHS staff who act as personal tutors to Imperial students.
