  14. 14. Tutor 1 A student in your subject area comes to their first personal tutorial at your invitation. They have been at MMU for two weeks. You feel it is useful if students give some thought as to what they might do when they leave university early in their university career. Use guidance principles and a coaching model (GROW or CIGAR) to shape the discussion. (15 minutes)
  15. 15. Student 1 You are in your first year of study. You chose the course because you liked it at school. You have not done much thinking beyond this; moving away from home and getting settled has taken up all your time and emotional energy so far. You like being with people and enjoy communicating. You have worked as a volunteer in a local Youth Centre. You are a bit panicked at the thought of writing your first assignment. Since this is your first meeting, you have no idea what to expect. (15 minutes)
  16. 16. Tutor 2 A student comes to see you at the beginning of their second year of study in your area. They have asked for an extra appointment. They seem uncomfortable. You have checked their attendance for the previous year and found it was erratic, to the extent that some colleagues have logged concerns. Try to give appropriate support and guidance which will assist the student to progress successfully. (15 minutes)
  17. 17. Student 2 You are in your second year at MMU. You like the course, but you work 25 hours per week in a local restaurant, where you have recently been asked to ‘act up’ as manager five nights a week. You started the job last year, to relieve fears about money, and you have agreed to taking on the extra responsibility. Sometimes you are too tired to make morning lectures and you’re worried it might be worse with the new role. You really want to get a degree, which costs so much money, but you are suffering stomach aches and sleeplessness. (15 minutes)
