Students celebrate the success of Peer Assisted Learning

Issue date: 04 May 2017


On Thursday 30 March, students and staff involved with Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) came together to celebrate their dedication towards enhancing the overall student experience.

PAL Leaders and PAL Interns play a vital role in providing peer-to-peer support across all university campuses. Speaking on the evening, Professor Jane Harrington (Deputy-Vice Chancellor), spoke about the significance of the work that PAL Leaders commit to and how the sense of community they create positively impacts upon the student body.

Host of the evening, Zoƫ Foster-Smith (PAL Supervisor), acknowledged the role of all PAL Leaders, PAL Interns and staff in the success of the PAL programme. Oli Schofield (PAL Manager), took the opportunity to formally acknowledge the PAL Supervisors for their commitment to supporting PAL Leaders throughout the year.

Thank you to all students involved in PAL for their enthusiasm and hard work throughout the year!
