Colleges and Tutors
The Mindful Education team is working hard to ensure that we continue to provide full support to all of our college partners during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We have also offered colleges the opportunity to use our AAT Level 2 and Level 3 online courses and apprenticeships free of charge during the college closure until the end of the academic year.
Detailed guidance to support colleges in using Mindful Education’s courses and apprenticeships is being emailed to all tutors; you should receive this by Friday 3 April. If you have any questions about this guidance, please do not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the specific guidance we are sending to all our tutors, we are also sharing news and advice across our social media. Follow our Twitter and LinkedIn accounts to stay up to date. We are running regular tutor training webinars, get in touch to find out more email@example.com
There are many resources for colleges and tutors who will be teaching remotely. The Association of Colleges (AoC) have compiled a series of resources for colleges to access throughout the crisis.
TES have also made many of their resources free to access.
Support for your students
Existing Online and On Campus tutors and their students should seek support via their usual contacts at Mindful Education. For those colleges taking advantage of the offer of free courses and apprenticehsips, students should be encouraged to contact their tutor in the first instance, or raise a technical ticket via the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). New students should also be encouraged to watch the VLE demo video, which is in the course introduction section of the VLE. This will provide a good overview of the system and how to get the most out of our online courses.
We have created a resource hub for students, which we hope will address the most common queries.
A comprehensive user guide is available for tutors and students. To access the guide, log in to the VLE and click ‘Help and Support’ in the top menu, then select ‘User Guide’ from the drop down menu. This guide can be downloaded and printed if you wish.
