Tutors should keep up to date with developments in teaching, learning and assessment and in their own subject specialism. Tutors are encouraged to attend the termly tutor event ‘Get Together, Train Together, Learn Together’ which will focus on key themes as outlined in Ofsted’s Common Inspection Framework.
