Progress Tutors

Progress Tutors act as a first point of contact for students, delivering pastoral and academic support through one-to-one meetings and group tutorials, where students are able to reflect on their academic progress and gain an insight into their progression options after JLC.

When students embark on their JLC journey they will be assigned a Progress Tutor.  Students can access their Progress Tutor at any point throughout the college week.

They also provide support with monitoring attendance and behaviour to instill independence and resilience within students. This enables them to be successful at college and prepares them for their next steps.

 

You can find the team in the Academic Resource Centre (ARC).

"I felt having support from my Progress Tutor helped me feel comfortable and safe around college."

 

“My Tutor is approachable and welcoming. I can talk to her about all sorts of things from potential degrees to helping me manage my time and find motivation."

 

“Ever since I have joined college all the Progress Tutor team have done a great amount of work to help me with my mental health, work and other issues."

 

“Having a Tutor has made me more confident and it has really helped me at college knowing that I can talk to them whenever I need to. It’s great to know that my Tutor can support me when needed and it also helps having a 1-1 and getting feedback has also boosted my confidence.”

 

When you join us at John Leggott College, parents/carers will be invited to a Welcome Parents' Evening where you will have the opportunity to meet your son/daughter Progress Tutor.

"The wellbeing support I’ve received from John Leggott College is amazing! They helped me before I even started college and made coming to college easier and more manageable. They are always there if I need them and they go above and beyond to make sure that I’m okay and safe in college. Without their support college would be a much different experience and I don’t think I could of even managed coming to college if they didn’t help me like they have done. I’m very grateful for the support I receive and I think the staff are doing a great job."
