Become a Peer Mentor!
We are delighted to confirm that since its launch in Trimester 1 (2021/22), our Peer Mentoring scheme now has a total of 109 trained and engaged Mentors. This is a very exciting development as it not only adds to the skills of participating Student Mentors, but it serves an important function in welcoming new students into the ARU London community and supporting these students through the exchange of positive experiences including beneficial study techniques on our courses. The feedback from our last Welcome Week was very positive from new students and the Peer Mentors who contributed to this activity.
We are seeking to recruit additional students for our May 2022 intake! All students currently studying at level 5 and who will commence their level 6 studies in May 2022 are eligible for consideration to join the scheme.
Becoming a Peer Mentor is a fantastic opportunity for you to boost your career and professional development whilst studying. Some of the benefits of joining the scheme include:
- Increased self-reflection – asking questions of a mentee supports deeper insight on your own learning path and achievements
- Expanded connections and networking opportunities which is a solid experience to add to your CV
- Improved communication and personal skills
- Leadership and management qualities
- Secured positive references
Please visit the Peer Mentoring tile on the VLE for further details and to register your interest in becoming a Peer Mentor. If appointed, you will be provided with training for the role, given ongoing support, and a Certificate of Achievement to confirm your contribution in this area which signals experience in a useful employability skill.
