Academic personal tutoring development opportunities

This page provides an overview of the development opportunities which will be available to academic personal tutors (APT) throughout the academic year.

We are currently in the process of refreshing our approach to development for academic personal tutors. 

Collaborating closely with our colleagues in Student Support, we're designing a core provision along with a wide range of optional sessions tailored for the upcoming 2024-25 academic year.

Further details and booking information will be shared in the near future. Sessions will be promoted once booking is open so pleased look out for announcements e.g. via the all staff eNews, MS Teams channels and on Twitter @UniLeedsODPL.  

Additional provision

This section provides details of related sessions which will be relevant to APTs.

Student Success Forum

The Student Success Forum provides a space to discuss strategic or operational changes that empower or enable colleagues to introduce discussion or changes to work practices in their respective areas. Visit the Student Success Forum SharePoint site to find out more and sign up to the Student Success mailing list to receive calendar invites.

Access and Success Insight Sessions

These sessions provide University staff with updates on Leeds' commitment to the Access and Student Success Strategy. Focusing on a different topic each month, sessions equip staff with practical information and provide a supportive environment for colleagues to meet and network with others from across the University. The Access and Success Insight Sessions are advertised about a month in advance. To sign-up for the sessions please email
