What is a workplace tutor needed for?
As a workplace tutor, you are like a road sign. You guide and show the best routes, but it is the student’s job to eventually find the way.
As a workplace tutor, you plan, guide and assess the student’s learning at your workplace.
You succeed in this when you are a professional in your own field, are familiar with the learning objectives of your student and the qualification/ modules related to them.
Most important, however, is that you are motivated to tutor. Other employees from your work community also take part in the tutoring. They form your support team in the tutoring process.
Tutoring is part of today’s professionalism. Negotiate with your supervisor on the time and resources needed. Your entire work community will share the benefits of tutoring.
