Tutors deliver one-to-one training to their Learner. Up to 15 to 20 Tutors are trained in tutoring skills before they are paired with their Learner for the duration of the course. Tutors are supported by the Rover at each lesson.
One volunteer Tutor is invited to fill the Rover role. He/she is not assigned their own individual Learner. Their role is to work with all the Tutor/Learner pairs addressing the more complex questions raised by Learners. This gives additional support to any Tutor and means that a higher level of digital tutoring skill is available to every Learner. This practice means that each Tutor also has the opportunity to learn new skills during their 121digital course.
Professional Level Support for the Rover :
GenerationTech (www.generationtech.ie) support 121digital Rovers by taking calls from Rovers who are supporting Tutor/Learner pairs attending lessons. A contact phone number is provided to facilitate timely communications.
