Student Skills


Expected Pupil Outcomes

The pupils will participate in Shared Education lessons and events and as a result they will work well in teams made up of pupils from both schools. The pupils with SEN that the student tutor works with will have increased numeracy and literacy skills.

Expected Student Tutor Outcomes

The student tutor will improve their confidence working in the school environment. Their written and oral communication skills will improve and they will also learn how to work as part of a team in the school environment. The project will also enrich their interpersonal skills.
