What are tutors?

Every student at Cirencester College has a tutor to look after them. Your tutor will work with you one-to-one to help you to develop independent learning skills and to keep you on track. You will also be given a pastoral or progression tutor who will help you to look after your wellbeing and support you to achieve your career goals.

Tutors are allocated to you based on your career aim and/or subject choice. This allows us to make the information we give you relevant to what you are planning to do.

What is in the tutorial programme?

Cirencester College’s tutorial programme is called Education for Life and it includes a range of taught sessions covering keeping yourself safe, looking after your health and wellbeing, and progression options such as how to apply to university, for an apprenticeship or for a job.

The programme also covers British values, democracy, the rule of law, tolerance and mutual respect. It looks at topical subjects in the news, giving you information about different viewpoints, to allow you to articulate your thoughts from an informed position. You will have the opportunity to discuss and debate these with your peers, helping to develop you into a well-rounded individual ready to face your future life and the world of university and/or work.
