The session Andy delivered on the 'Ideal Student Experience' at BCU was great. I came away with some really practical techniques that I was able to put in to practice straight away. An example of this is in personal tutorials meeting, I applied strategies and structure suggested by Andy to achieve a positive, solution focused and goal driven outcome for myself and the student.
