Student role in tutoring

July 14, 1995

Co-ordinating Student Tutoring Schemes need not cost the earth (THES, May 5). At Aston University, the scheme is expanding rapidly thanks to an innovative approach to recruiting volunteers.

The scheme is presently in its third and most successful year. We have placed 161 students in 48 local schools and colleges, a 60 per cent increase on the previous year. Aston now uses one of its own students, on professional placement, to run its student tutoring scheme. My role as co-ordinator forms part of my managerial and administrative studies degree programme.
