Learner Development Tutors
Learning Development Tutors (LDTs) act as the main point of contact for full-time students. They play a key supporting role between lecturing staff and support staff, and each LDT is assigned to a particular curriculum centre where they work in partnership with lecturing staff to support and enhance students’ retention, achievement and progression. 

What do LDTs do?

Main LDT duties:
  • Play a core role in the induction programme for students
  • Develop and facilitate a clear and relevant weekly timetabled tutorial for their classes, including but not limited to: 
  • Employability
  • Citizenship
  • Sustainability
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Equality and diversity 
  • Study skills/Time Management
  • (These are aligned with the Curriculum for Excellence to support the development of students’ essential skills)
  • Construct an individual learning plan for each student and also hold one-to-one review meetings
  • Attendance monitoring and addressing absence issues
  • Act as student disciplinary coordinator, to retain students and promote positive behaviour
  • Provide non-academic guidance and pastoral support, referring students to appropriate internal and external assistance
  • Play a key role within curriculum teams, supporting students’ on-course retention, engagement and progression
