Working with winners

As part of our commitment to raising the profile of personal tutoring excellence in the University, Winners will be expected to disseminate their work in this area more widely in collaboration with the Dean of Students Office.

The format of this is flexible, and may include:

  • Short video interviews
  • Articles
  • Presentations at University events
  • Facilitating workshops

Any content generated may be added to webpages and used in other publicity materials.
