Do you want to be a Peer Supporter?
Do you want to be able to
make a difference to the welfare of your peers at Plymouth University? Would you like to take part in a stimulating
training course which will cover some important life skills?
Peer Supporters offer friendly, informal but confidential support to fellow students. They are trained to listen and aim to help others find their own solutions to some of the immediate pressures they may be experiencing. As students themselves, Peer Supporters have all had first-hand experience of the challenges university life can bring.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a University-wide peer support programme. Previous trainees have spoken warmly about the learning and opportunities gained from participating in the training.
We are inviting students in their second year at PU to apply. Final year or postgraduate students would need to consider carefully whether they have the time to commit to the training and the peer listening scheme.
If you think this would be for you please email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out the start dates for 2016/17.
"I think this training has been of great value in so many ways. It has taught me skills I have begun to use without thinking in daily life, as well as make me more open, confident and accepting. I feel I have learnt a lot every week without fail."
