After you have filled the e-form you can choose your interview time. The interviews will be done as group interviews on campuses. Notice, that you don’t have to have the interview on your own campus if the date is not suitable for you but you can choose an interview time from any campus. It is also possible to agree with a lecturer to miss a part of a lecture because of the interview. Special arrangements could also be agreed upon for example on using Skype to participate. The interview is compulsory if you want to become a tutor.
Once you’ve been selected to become a tutor, you can sign up for the tutoring study unit in Pakki. The study unit’s code is 01540. Note that study unit will be held in English only in Leppävaara.
Tutoring consists of a semester-long training and a semester-long tutoring of new students and exchange students.
The training of all the Laurea tutors will be arranged during the spring semester of 2020. The training will consist of contact meetings on each campus, different kinds of assignments and a tutor camp with all the Laurea tutors in the spring of 2020.
Tutors are required to keep a record of their actions, assignments and all that they have learned and write them down in portfolio. Tutors get 5 credit points for tutoring if they have done their job well. Notice you can get these points on top of all the other selectives and they will not prevent you from attending any other selective study unit.
During the training the tutors will choose a representative from amongst themselves that will work as a coordinator for the tutoring and as a communication link towards the Laureamko tutoring team.
