Supporting their fellow students
Well done to all twenty four second year students from our Education BA and Primary Education with QTS courses who received their certificates for being PASS Leaders recently.
PASS (Peer Assisted Study Sessions) is a national and international university scheme, where students work in pairs to facilitate study support groups for first year students.
The leaders benefit by enhancing their own study skills, employability and increasing confidence. For participants they can learn from students who have already completed their first year.
Mel Gill, student experience champion and student support and guidance tutor in the School of Education said: “It was a pleasure to present the PASS leaders with their certificates.
“They all gave up their time to volunteer and run study support sessions for the first years and did a great job.”
Around 50% of first year students took up the offer to be part of the scheme and we hope many of them will return as PASS leaders in the next academic year.
