The Imperial Award can be earned by your tutee to go on their graduation transcript, alongside their degree. It formally recognises their personal development. It is voluntary but designed for all. Even if they do not submit statements to the College assessor panel, they will benefit from using the online tools to develop their CVs. Do urge your tutee to register online.

Personal Tutors already discuss personal development with tutees; that doesn’t change, even if the tutee does not register for the Award. But the Award gives a sharper purpose when discussing extracurricular learning and personal development. Online tools, workshops and peer support means that Award tutees have resources in addition to you: a win-win on resources.
