Peer Assisted Study Skills (PASS) Programme
PASS is an established initiative within the University, supported by the Skills Team. PASS invloves higher year student volunteers working in pairs with small groups of first year students in weekly timetabled sessions.
PASS is not designed to replace interactions between staff and students. PASS sessions are always based on existing materials, so that the student leaders are not put in a position where they feel they need to teach. PASS has been developed to enhance the student experience by helping students to develop their academic skills while fostering a sense of community.
PASS is disciplne based and is usually attached to a challenging first year module. The leaders don't re-teach material; they help first year students work together using facilitation strategies specifically designed for PASS. In the 2013/14 academic session PASS was run in nine departments.
