All Peer Support Volunteers

Leaders in Education – Advanced Programme (LEAP)

LEAP is our our brand new advanced training programme! LEAP lasts one semester and you can take part in either Semester 1 or 2.

Attend 3 out of the 5 following advanced training sessions (must include either A or B):

  • LEAP A - Developing Leadership & Project Management 

  • LEAP B - Managing Collaboration & Team Working

  • LEAP C - Practicing Public Speaking & Networking

  • LEAP D - Enhancing Personal & Professional Attributes

  • LEAP E - Exploring Cultural Awareness & Inclusivity (online)

With the ongoing support of Student Voice, you will take part in short, interactive assessments and complete a reflective report at the end of the programme. You will receive ongoing support from the Student Voice team to develop your skills, confidence and employability.

Once you pass you will get a certificate, help with your CV and interview skills and invite to an exclusive presentation evening and networking event and the end of the year. You can also earn Rep or Peer Support points for attending the sessions.

Employability Award

All Peer Support Volunteers can use the experience and knowledge they gain through working with our project towards gaining an Employability Award.

The Employability Award provides you with a framework through which you can record your co-curricular activities and reflect on the employability skills you have developed.  For more information please follow the link:

Chat to other Mentors

Each department has a Facebook Page dedicated solely to Mentors.  Please email your student Coordinator if you want to join your departmental Mentor Facebook page.




You will be able to find an online version of your PALF Handbook with all the details of the Training and more ideas for helping you to facilitate your session on the u-learn page.  

Coming soon there will be a space to find useful handouts and resources made by other PALF’s and a place to add your own so the PALF’s next year can reuse all your great material!  Check back after the end of November for the link.
