    Hi, all.

    What's the difference between a mentor and study skills tuition in general?
    I published my post in the wrong context yesterday.

    I wasn't awarded a mentor in my actual Needs Assessment and already have study skills tuition in place. I feel a mentor would have benefited me but I'm trying to gather information so I can differentiate the two to understand why I wouldn't been awarded one?

    Thanks.

    Mentoring is for students with mental health conditions/autistic spectrum disorder, study skill tuition is for students with specific learning difficulties. It used to be a bit less black and white than that, but now SFE are very unlikely to fund recommendations that don't follow that criteria. Students with ADD/ADHD could have both though.
