Pastoral Care

The role of tutor is derived from the Latin word 'tuerri' meaning to 'watch over'. In the New testament the role of pastor and teacher are combined into one. As a College the focus is on teaching, but this combined gift is considered to be the most vital for students, and so we choose our tutors carefully. In the majority of cases this should eliminate any further need for pastoral care, but should there be extra need for attention to student's welfare, then this will be provided by other members of staff.
