To help recently-appointed tutors prepare for their first encounter in the classroom, CLeaR offers two 2-hour workshops: Introduction to Tutoring (prior to semester start), followed by Tutoring: Moving on From the First Session (offered during the semester). These occur twice a year (February/March and June/July). Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions and share their experiences with the class in the second round. Please send a request to CLeaR to be registered for the next available sessions.


We are also available to assist individual schools and departments, organising in-house tutor and demonstrator training sessions. Get in touch with us via our consultation request form.
