Course Documents





The established Academic, Personal Tutor (APT) system has been reviewed from the perspective of postgraduate students. From the outcome of the review a refreshed system has been developed by the Postgraduate Strategy Unit, informed by working with postgraduate (taught) students and in consultation with academic and professional services staff. The system has been approved for implementation at the start of the 2019/2020 academic year. The Personal Professional Development System (PPDT) created is more aligned to postgraduate students’ personal professional development needs and the nature of their postgraduate studies. It is a system that adopts a student-centred approach to supporting and facilitating PGT students in their journey.

What are the benefits?

This workshop has been designed to introduce a personal tutoring system specifically for postgraduate (taught) students and provides an opportunity to network with the colleagues from across the university who work within the postgraduate community of students.

The aims of the workshop are:
• Introduce the Personal Professional Development (PPDT) system
• Explore the role of a PPDT and use of coaching skills in the partnership engagement with PGT students.
• Provide guidance on signposting and the student services available to students for a range of support

The workshop will be facilitated by Ruth Heames (Postgraduate Team), Diane Phimister (Health and Life Sciences) and Lisa Burman (Organisation Development).
