Student writing consultants at UBC Okanagan’s Writing and Research Centre and UBC Vancouver’s Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication will now be approved for the College Reading and Learning Association’s International Tutor Training Program Certification (CRLA ITTPC).

“The strength of both the Okanagan and the Vancouver tutorial programs relies on the excellent team of student staff who work together, share knowledge, and create a safe and supportive environment for students seeking to improve as writers,” says Amanda Brobbel, Manager for Writing and Research Services at UBC-O, “Our peer writing consultants can now be recognized for their hard work and the intensive training they participate in.”

The ITTPC certification process sets an internationally accepted standard of skills and training for tutors. Adoption of the certification will allow for a clear and cohesive curriculum and will increase collaboration with the university’s units and faculty experts for tutor training.  The certification also secures a deserved reputation for both campuses’ tutoring programs and other student-focused tutorial services both nationally and internationally.

The initiative was spearheaded by Amanda Brobbel, Manager for the Writing and Research Centre, and Meghan Aube, past Program Manager at the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication.

“The CRLA certification will serve to further strengthen the writing tutorial services available on both campuses,” says Julie Mitchell, Assistant Director, Student Engagement Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, “Receiving this certification is a testament to the strength of the existing training programs that have been developed collaboratively between the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication and the Writing and Research Centre and will serve to further strengthen the writing services available to students at UBC.”
