This year the Academic and Skills Development Centre has not just expanded but have made some changes to how we operate.
Student Mentor Scheme
During 2013 - 2014 we recruited Student Mentor Consultants - a team of experienced Mentors who were available to assist those students who were new to the job.
Academic and Study Skills Classes
Students can now gain Certificates by following 5 classes offered through the Academic and Skills Development Centre, rewarding students for their work and commitment. In feedback, 98% of students said they had learned something new to help them with their studies. The timetable for Semester 2 is now available. You can book your place on a class any time via our online booking system.
On Friday 31st January we hosted a Celebration Event in recognition of the commitment of our Student Mentors. Certificates were presented by the Pro-Vice Chancellor for Student Experience & Academic Standards, Prof. Patricia Price and we had a short talk from two of our students - Hannah Doddrell from Earth Sciences spoke about why she applied to be a mentor and what the experience has meant to her whilst Grace Weatherill-Podbury from Business spoke about the experience and knowledge she has gained as a Mentor Consultant. We then retired to Aberdare Hall for a wine reception.
Well done to all those who passed the training and stuck with the scheme.
