Faculty Enabling Tutors

The Faculty Enabling Tutor (FET) is an appointed academic staff member with an interest in and commitment to the academic support provisions of students with a range of sensory or physical impairments. The FET has a responsibility for advising colleagues within their respective schools about individual student adjustments which are communicated through the Tutor Awareness Sheet (TAS).

Each school has a dedicated FET who advises students and academic staff about a range of support and they work closely with the Student Support & Wellbeing Advisers. They have direct access to the Tutor Awareness Sheets of students that are studying within their schools and they act as the main contact for within schools for issues concerning reasonable adjustments.

We advise that when a student begins their course that they arrange an initial meeting with their FET so that they are aware of who they are and how they can support the student within the learning environment. The FET can advise students and staff on course specific adjustments such as:

  • Lecture notes to be uploaded into Canvas in advance of the lecture 
  • Considerate marking process for written work
  • In-Class test arrangements
  • Internal academic processes such as - Extensions; Extenuating Circumstances; Placements and Leave of Absence
