Personal Tutor

Personal tutor scheme

Every student will have a Personal Tutor. This will normally be your Course Director or another member of the permanent staff team.
The role of the Personal Tutor Scheme is to provide academic advice and guidance to support you through your course. Personal Tutors can’t give advice on non-academic matters, but will help you to find the right specialist support if you have problems not directly related to your course.  The aim of our Personal Tutor scheme is:
  • to build rapport between staff and students and contribute to personalising students’ experience at CSVPA.
  • to provide appropriate academic advice and guidance to students throughout their time at CSVPA by monitoring their progress and helping to identify individual needs.
  • to foster a close and engaged academic relationship with students and advise and refer students to other school services as appropriate.
  • to help to develop students’ ability to be self-reliant and self-reflective and their ability to use feedback to best advantage.


  • Personal Tutors will be allocated at the beginning of the academic year.
  • You will be invited to an introductory welcome tutorial meeting at the beginning of the academic year.
  • For our students on BA, Graduate Diploma and Master's, subsequent tutorials will follow and respond to key stages in the academic year.
  • Every effort is made to ensure you keep the same personal tutor throughout your study.
  • One-to-one meetings will vary in length depending on the profile and needs of individual students
