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:
The online training can be found here.
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.
Chat with other PALFS

Peer Support Student Sub-Committee
The Peer Support Student Sub-committee is formed of current volunteers who meet at least once a month, to discuss the Peer Support Scheme as a whole.
Together the committee aims to discuss and implement ways the Peer Support Scheme can progress. The committee also discusses any issues volunteers may have and aims to resolve these.
The Committee leads various projects to help the Peer Support Scheme progress. For example, the current committee was working on producing a video to help promote the scheme. The Committee agree upon the tasks and each volunteer gets an opportunity to chair a project.
As a member of the Peer Support Sub-Committee, volunteers also get the opportunity to represent students at the Management Group meetings for Peer Support.
For the new academic year we are hoping to focus on two to three big projects that the new commitee will decide based on how this benefits the wider group of peer support volunteers. this is an exciting opportunity and a great way to build in confidence, network and looks great on CV's. If you are interested in getting involved email us at email@example.com or pop into the Student Voice office.
