UKAT, the United Kingdom Advising and Tutoring association, is a learned society of professional practitioners and researchers interested in advancing the scholarship and practice of student advising and personal tutoring in Higher Education in the UK. We advance the field through our conferences, symposia, workshops, support for original research, peer-reviewed academic publications, accreditation of practice, professional courses, and resources.
In current times, the call for greater, more personalised support for students in Higher Education as arguably never been greater. The range of support required has diversified alongside our student body. The Doughnut Model is a model that was designed to address the increasing need for student support in the Central Foundation Year Programmes at University of Sussex. It has enabled us to reduce withdrawal rates, increase success during the resit period and facilitate the number of students accessing wider support services. In the webinar, we will share not only what the model looks like but also some of the detail about how it functions.
