I am currently tutor for 33 students on my 0.2 contract which are spread over the four years of the BA and two years of the MSW programme. I support those students who are out on placement and ensure that they have sufficient learning opportunities. I hear and assess and give written feedback for their organisational analysis presentations and mark their case studies - these tasks are undertaken in partnership with practice teachers. As well as having individual tutorials I meet students in group to assist them with any areas of the course that they may be having difficulties with as well discussing practice and using my experience to assist them to relate their reading and teaching to practice. Part of my role is also to deal with any personal difficulties they may be experiencing that are impacting on their work. I have been able to assist them deal with the difficulties arising from the current pandemic. The pastoral side of my role has increased significantly in the last year.
