Student tutors could come from a range of subject areas, however they would need to be organised and disciplined individuals. Student tutors would need to have good interpersonal and communication skills.
Students will: meet coursework submission dates; produce higher quality clearly structured coursework; plan for exam preparation; draw up revision programme that they can work to; develop revision techniques; collate resources to support revision programme - notes/ past papers etc; identify resources to support revision - websites/ books etc.
Student Tutor will develop motivational techniques, coaching/ mentoring skills, interpersonal and communication skills. They would be able to gain an insight into school life, and perhaps experience that would enable them to make an informed decision about progressing to a PGCE qualification. In addition, they might well have a sense of achievement in knowing they have helped a young person become more organised, disciplined, and in turn progress further academically.
