The relationship between PATs and students is vital in this process as PATs will be able to spot signs of students disengaging at an early stage and can initiate appropriate interventions to help them re-engage. However when a student or staff member begins the withdrawal process, the Personal Academic Tutor will be notified to allow them to support the student and explain the options available to them.
The role of the Module Leader in this process would be to flag up concerns e.g. about poor attendance of lack of achievement with the relevant PAT so that an appropriate course of action may be taken.
