Kathrina Perry (UON), ‘Women, Religious Philanthropy and the Northampton Boot and Shoe Industry’

Religious observance offered a broad variety of opportunities for women to participate in philanthropic activity. This talk will consider the links between the non-conformism of Northampton’s religious beliefs and the boot and shoe industry. It will explore the involvement of the wives and daughters of the boot and shoe manufacturers, and will question the motivations behind the many donations to religious organisations within the town that are still visible today.

EMC Annual CPD Event: Managing Students in Distress

Special Event in Partnership with UK Advising and Tutoring (UKAT)

University of Northampton 28th June 2023

Event Registration Deadline: 12th June.

On welcoming your student into the room, you can immediately tell from their body language that something is wrong…they appear distracted, arms tightly closed with their eyes fixed on the carpet. The student looks up at you and shares what is distressing them with you.

You are the first person they have told…what are you going to do next?

Situations like this can be difficult for personal tutors and managing students in distress is something that personal tutors can often find daunting. If you sometimes feel apprehensive about supporting distressed students, you are not alone.

This workshop provides a safe space to explore these challenges using interactive theatre and will equip you with management strategies to deal with such situations. The strategies have been devised to specifically build tutor confidence in working with students who present with distress at differing levels of severity.

Please note: Booking is essential and early booking and registration is strongly advised. Places on this CPD training course are limited.
