Tutor Led Care (TLC)

“Student Wellbeing is present when students realise their abilities, take care of their physical Wellbeing, can cope with the normal stresses of life, and have a sense of purpose and belonging to a wider community. (NCCA Wellbeing Guidelines 2017, pg 17). The goal of Wellbeing in education is human flourishing for all. When children and young people are ‘flourishing’ they are not only curious and eager to learn, they are: creative and imaginative, connected and empathetic, good team players, confident about who they are, resilient and persistent, positive about themselves and see themselves growing into better people.” (NCCA Wellbeing Guidelines 2017, Growing Great Kids pg 11)

Tutor Led Care (TLC) is a weekly tutorial class for a period of one hour. The Wellbeing indicators, such as Active, Responsible, Connected, Resilient, Respected, and Aware, are dealt with during this time between students and their tutors. Ms. Douglas is heavily involved in the material that is used during this class. These indicators highlight what is important for young people and their Wellbeing. Attendance and other school related issues are also dealt with. The relationship between tutor and class group is a very important part of what we do here in St.Aidan’s.

The TLC class is a space where students can comfortably engage with their tutor on any issue or problem they may be having. Each TLC Class usually has a specific theme or message. Students receive a healthy snack during the class. (This has been postponed due to the ongoing Covid situation)
