In a Personal Tutor’s absence tutees should be advised of an alternative contact via the usual methods, for example an email out-of-office message. It is strongly recommended that you do not pass on personal phone numbers to your tutees.  

In the case of extended Personal Tutor absences, the Senior Tutor should be made aware so that an alternative personal tutoring arrangement can be made for tutees. 

Advice on what to do in a crisis, including outside normal working hours, is found in this Guide's section on Supporting Students
