Tutorial and Pastoral Team

Tutorial and pastoral support underpin student welfare, in the widest sense. Individual Colleges may involve a variety of individuals, e.g. Tutors (who are generally Fellows of the College, and may have separate academic responsibilities within the College and the University), nurses or chaplains. However it is delivered, tutorial provision is an essential component of collegiate life.

Typically, a Tutor has a wide variety of responsibilities which may be grouped together under the three headings below. Because their role is to provide all-round support and guidance to the individuals in their care, it would not be feasible to provide an exhaustive list of their responsibilities. However, listed below are some of the regular ways in which Tutors, together with Tutorial Office Staff, Directors of Studies, nurses and chaplains, fulfil their role. Clearly, some of these functions entail strict confidentiality.
