It’s almost been a full year since second year student Hugh Barrett introduced the College’s first Peer Mentoring scheme and what a success it’s been.

This week, Mentors were rewarded for their dedication to their roles and we took a moment to look back on a great year.

Hugh worked hard throughout the year to make the programme the success that it was and supported a total of 9 mentors in delivering helpful sessions to their peers. Mentors were specialists in a range of different subjects and offered weekly sessions to groups and individuals who felt they needed help within their studies. English Teacher and Advanced Graduate Programme Leader Hetty Brown thanked Hugh and his team for their dedication to the role and explained how the programme has been a huge benefit to many students.

Peer Mentor Sam Pollard explained how the programme was beneficial to both those he mentored and him. Sam dedicated time each week to go over Computer Science content with his fellow students and said that the process of teaching others was incredibly helpful and enabled him to understand the subject better.
