We have a number of trained Peer Mentors ready, waiting and very eager to provide pastoral support to new and first year students across the University.
Our Peer Mentoring Scheme has been running since 2010 and is fully accredited by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation. Students who have been mentored in previous years commented that that they had developed; study skills, self-confidence, self-awareness, communication skills, time management skills and much more as a direct result of the mentoring support.
So, if you feel there is a student you know, who would benefit from having a mentor to help them with issues such as settling in to University life, building their self-confidence, being a friendly-face to discuss time management and realistic goals with or just sharing their own experiences of University life, please let them know about the Peer Mentoring Scheme.
Staff can refer a student to us using the Staff Referral Form (but do let them know you are going to do so), or students can apply directly and we will take it from there.
For further information about the scheme, please contact Julia Hewitt
