Identification Number/DOI: HIST009


This project deals with an identified gap in supporting students who do not have a learning support agreement. The project involves giving specific training to postgraduates who would then support undergraduate students and utilises existing on-line resources already available within the college.

Postgraduates are given training in how to support specific skills and then they run workshops and one-to-one sessions for undergraduates seeking particular help or advice (e.g. essay writing; punctuation; referencing; understanding feedback; exam techniques).

The aim is to involve 10 postgraduates across the College in the pilot, ideally spread across enough disciplines to help the majority of students.
