  • Your Personal Tutor or Programme Leader will invite you, via your student email account, to some tutor facilitated workshops in order to support you with any reassessments. You will also receive a text message to remind you of the sessions. It is important that you attend any workshops that you are invited to in order to provide the best opportunity to achieve your qualification.

  • Don’t forget the Academic Coach – Terry King will be based in UC115 on Mondays and Thursdays between 1pm and 3pm if you need to call in and see him.  This service will be available from the 14th June, or email him for a 1:1 – academic.coach@blackburn.ac.uk
