12 Academic Expectations - Attendance
On time Registers Absence/illness Go through these elements briefly to set out your expectations – most students will know this already from previous study or induction. It is not the role of the tutor to chase student attendance. Attendance Students are expected to have 100% attendance. They are only eligible for pass assurance if they have 100% attendance. You will not have time to provide any re-caps of missed sessions It is the responsibility of the student to catch up on work but guidance should be given to ensure students know what to do You will provide them with guidance on what was covered in any class so they can use MyStudy It is the responsibility of the student to ask for this guidance On time College starts at 9am for class registration in the morning and there will be an afternoon registration at the start of the afternoon session Students who arrive late in either the morning or afternoon session will be marked Late/absent Registers A head count should be carried out Discrepancies should be sorted out before the class starts Remind students that signing fellow students in is actually a disciplinary issue Absence If a student knows they are going to be absent from class they must inform the ACCA Full Time Team/Local Programme Administrator If a student is ill they must alert the Full Time Team on the day of illness (tutors are not expected to chase or challenge absence)
