Probationers:Core Session and mandatory (priority will be offered to probationers, if the session proves very popular). Highly recommended for: Personal Tutors/Doctoral Supervisors
This session aims to equip academic staff with the knowledge and tools to help them feel more confident in supporting students from a pastoral care perspective.
The session will help you understand your responsibilities in relation to pastoral care and understand more about student wellbeing and factors that can limit student success.
You will explore different student scenarios that will help you think about approaches to respond to student needs, whilst maintaining professional boundaries, as well as thinking about different support services available to students.
Joining instructions and any pre course work will be sent out one week before delivery of the session.
Please note: for those not on probation, a record of attendance will be uploaded to iTrent for staff development purposes. Please indicate in the ‘Specific Requirements’ box when booking if you do NOT wish for your attendance to be uploaded to iTrent.
