What is the role of a Peer Mentor? As a Peer Mentor, you will share your knowledge with first year degree students about the opportunities, services and resources available within the College. We are looking for three types of mentors: Study Mentor to focus on study skills and organisation, a Listening Ear Mentor to support those students who need someone to speak to and a Learning Technology Mentor who will assist with all technology queries in and outside the classroom.

Who can apply to be a peer mentor? Applicants need to be studying a HE degree course and progressing into their 2nd or 3rd year.

How are sessions run? Mentors will arrange 1-2-1 sessions with their assigned mentees.

Will I receive training? Yes. Mentors will receive full training in preparation for their new role. This training is compulsory and will run over 2 days.
