Working with CCYM
At Cambridge CYM we are a small core team, but frequently use a wider base of tutors and supervisors. This enables us to draw upon the expertise and knowledge of others in the field. The commitment required for a tutor or supervisor varies with the role.
Become a dissertation supervisor
Most third year students choose to complete a dissertation or a professional practice evaluation as part of their degree. The deadline for this piece of work is usually just after the Easter holidays. The topic is chosen by the student and they are allocated a supervisor who will have specific knowledge of the area they are interested in. Supervisors are expected to meet with the student to discuss and review their progress. Students and supervisors generally meet for about four hours in total.

Become a professional practice tutor
All students have to complete a professional practice portfolio. During the first two years, professional practice tutors meet with the student nine times during the year to assist in the development of their practical work skills and the assessment of their learning. They hold two meetings per year with the student and their line manager and observe the student in their practice agency twice during the year. Portfolios are formally assessed in the spring term and the summer term. In the third year, there are three supervision sessions and the tutor is required to attend and assess a presentation by the student.
