In September, the Student Success team within Careers & Employability launched a new University wide, HEAR accredited, Peer Mentoring programme.
The programme has been designed to support students with the transition to university life, and to embed a sense of belonging whilst at the University.
Peer mentoring is a form of mentorship that involves a person who has more experience in a particular area (in this case university) offering pastoral support to another (in this case yourselves as mentees).
Having a peer mentor can help whilst you are at university, as they are sharing the same experiences, and may have dealt with similar issues to be able to signpost you to the correct support or guidance services. If you are a first year student, they can also tell you more about the University, and the city of Liverpool!
Some areas you might expect to discuss with your mentor include:
The delivery of the programme will be at faculty level, for every faculty mentors from varied course backgrounds will meet with mentees via a group approach and on a one to one basis.
The Peer Mentoring scheme sits within the Road to Success framework. The ethos of the framework is that each student is the driving force behind their own success and should be encouraged to get support from all professional teams across the University. Find out more here.
Mentees can find out more about the programme and sign up here. The programme will be facilitated through Liverpool Connect, an online e-networking platform, so if you haven’t already you will need to also create a Liverpool Connect profile.
Drop in sessions will also be held across all three faculties to introduce the programme, so keep an eye out for those.
The mentors for the 2019/20 academic year have now been recruited. However, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to take part next year.
