Project Contacts: Sandra Rennie – SEQUALS; Dr Denise Robinson, Consortium for PCET; Beryl Clarke, Tameside College
Project aims to report on the take-up of the facility of volunteer tutors onto the University Cert. Ed/PGCE provision at Consortium centres. This will extend to a description and analysis of their numbers, distribution across the Consortium partner colleges, the volunteer tutors’ profiles (occupational/profession, age, ethnicity, gender, disability, teaching subject, LLS workbase, previous teaching experience, etc.). A second element will include a survey of the perceptions of the volunteer tutors of their experience on the Cert. Ed/PGCE.
Sandra Rennie has been commissioned to undertake this project.
