Hallam wins NCUK funding to offer PAL mentoring in partner insitutions abroad

We are starting an exciting project to introduce the role of the peer-assisted learning mentor to students on Sheffield Hallam courses in Sino-British College, Botswana Accountancy College, the School for Higher and Professional Education, Hong Kong, the School for Continuing and Professional Education, Hong Kong, Suzhou Health College and Hunan  University of Science and Technology, China.

Current Sheffield-based student volunteers will be trained to deliver one-to-one guidance and group sessions to Sheffield Hallam students in our partner institutions. The PAL mentors will cover topics related to:

  • accessing Hallam learning resources and online databases
  • using Blackboad
  • study skills
  • peer mentoring

The PAL mentors will spend 1-2 weeks in each instutution and will engage with study and social activities with students and staff.
