For the last couple of years the department has been working with students from later years who provide support for the first years. The Peer Assisted Student Support sessions are run by PASS leaders who give up their time to help. Their sessions have proved very popular and a lot of students owe quite a few percent of their grades to the patient support of these folks.
Today, by way of a thank-you, the university organised a barbecue, knowing that one thing that students prize above all others is free food. There were also certificates to be had. From the left we have David Arrowsmith-Cooper, Gareth Andrews, Antony Nunn and Phininder Balaghan.
In the middle, wearing the suit, we have Dr Richard Heseltine who is the Director of Library and Learning Innovation and University Librarian. Well done folks.
We are presently recruiting PASS leaders for next year. If you fancy having a go, feel free to get in touch.
