Dear Mr Stanley,

     Please accept our apologies for the delayed response. The College has
now moved to Online Delivery due to COVID-19 and it became a priority that
all teams worked to ensure the continuity of delivery for student facing
services during this time.

 

At this stage we are able to supply the following information. If you
require this broken into a per-tutor group basis we would be able to do so
but we will only refer to each group by it’s code as to not reveal the
teachers personal information.

 

Please let us know if you would like this additional analysis.

 

How many students were on the course?

88 completers.

· What percentage of students achieved a grade of D*D*D*?

36 of 88 achieved D*D*D, so 41%*

· For each tutor group, for both years 1 and 2 individually, could you
please provide the overall percentage figures for the Personal Tutor
tutorials?

Year 1 Final Attendance = 95.3%

Year 2 Final Attendance = 93.6%
