We celebrate the contribution of our top Peer Mentors

Posted on

Every year we recruit around 100 students to act as Peer Mentors while they’re in Year 2 of their courses. Peer Mentors help at taster days, open evenings,  admissions events, induction days, parents’ evenings, career fairs, insight days and college tours, and also work with new students at the start of the college year to help them find their feet. Peer Mentors have also served on student interview panels to appoint Progress Coaches and Counsellors and acted as buddies for students who need extra support. Acting as a Peer Mentor is an excellent addition to students’ personal statements as it demonstrates commitment, the ability to take responsibility and to empathise.

Peer Mentors receive enrichment credits for their work, and we have held an award ceremony for those who assisted at the most events (rated Gold, Silver and Bronze and those who collected more than 50 enrichment credits for peer mentoring (credits are awarded for each hour’s work).
