The range of information a PAT could need probably touches on every aspect of student learning. It’s not been possible to include everything within these resources but here are a few essentials:
Log into UHI Records
Then click the PAT button from the Staff Hub:
And click View My Students:
The My Students screen includes a Student Support column. A View link and flag will be visible for any student who has an arrangement in place within Additional Support Online as a result of disclosed additional support needs. Click the View link for further details of the support measures agreed for that student.
If you can see a flag in the Student Support column without a View link you are advised to contact local Academic Partner Student Services in the first instance to ensure the appropriate records are set up.
Personal Learning Support Plan (PLSP)
The university's web-based Additional Support Online system enables students with an approved Personal Learning Support Plan (PLSP) in place to access their support records via UHI Records. The system records a student's interactions with Academic Partner Student Services and is available to FE and HE students.
Additional Support Online allows students with disclosed needs and relevant staff (e.g. student support practitioners and Personal Academic Tutors) to view and work from a single source of data from within UHI Records. On-demand reports are now also available to provide details of specific student requirements on a need-to-know basis (e.g. to Academic Partner Exams Officers, for the purposes of implementing exam arrangements).
The system promotes transparency in the provision of student support and engages the student as an equal partner in the process.
PATs can use Additional Support Online to:
Click on the words to reveal.
View details of a student's appointments / contact with Academic Partner Student Services.
Identify which of their students has an approved PLSP in place, and view relevant PLSP recommendations that have been put in place for the student.
PATs are responsible for disseminating a student's Summary of Support to relevant staff involved in teaching the student.
Download a university dyslexia sticker for a student (if access to dyslexia stickers has been approved within their PLSP.
View items of equipment that have been loaned to help support the student during their studies, and see when loaned items are due back.
View any exam arrangements that have been approved for the student.
Each international student will have a HAP and it is the responsibility of that HAP to assign a PAT to those international students just as they would for any other student. Each academic partner will have either a designated individual or department with responsibility for ensuring legislation is complied with and becomes process. They will work with departments and teams within their AP to ensure any such requirements are reinforced. There will be a natural interaction between the PAT and the aforementioned individuals and departments e.g. the PAT may need to flag up poor attendance.
