Personal Tutorials and PPD
"My tutor was very helpful and personally focused on developing areas I had difficulty with"
- UCL Student, School of Pharmacy
UCL has long believed in the importance of the personal and professional development of its students. A university education should foster not only the acquisition of subject
knowledge, but also the advanced skills, knowledge and attributes that will enable
graduates to meet the significant challenges ahead.
Supporting Personal and Professional Development can act as a way for you and your tutees to get to know each other. Ultimately you want to empower students to deal with their own difficulties and take control of their development - one way of doing this is to encourage them in their personal and professional development to draw on their strengths.
