Developing the Personal Tutoring Programme has been at time difficult, arduous, exciting and enlightening . Yet soon, I will be leaving the Personal Tutoring path for pastures new and the Coventry Awards last night was the best way to bring an end to my Coventry University London/Personal Tutoring journey.
I am delighted to share that the dedication and hard work of my team, and wider department, led us to win the Coventry Awards for Student Support Initiative of the Year.
In October 2017, whilst managing the enrolment event, I had two short weeks to develop the Personal Tutoring programme single-handedly (albeit with guidance and support from the Head of Student Engagement).
My team, department and I have come so far since those two stressful weeks and created a holistic service, which offer guidance, support and skills development to our diverse cohort. Within a 2.5 member team, we have been able to succeed using the bare minimum, from developing a full inter-relational database using SharePoint to a range of face-to-face and online, engaging, active and interesting study and pastoral skills workshops.
The pride I feel in my team is overwhelming and to seeing our efforts recognised in the annual Coventry Awards was fantastic.
