Havering College has a well-established and recognised system for reviewing the progress of students. This process is an integral part of the tutorial programme, providing support and guidance to learners with an emphasis on the need to engage them in setting targets that will help them progress towards their identified goals.
In 2003 the records of mid-term reviews (case conferences) and individual tutorials at Havering College were kept on paper. During 2005/6 the College began to look at using IT systems to record this type of information. This was in part a response to the improved IT infrastructure at Havering and confidence in the central data the College held, but it also responded to the need for a system that students could access for a summary of their progress and feedback from their tutors.
