In order for P2P to be rolled out in a programme, commitment from the following areas is required:

  • Student Life and Learning: Staff from the Retention & Engagement Team in SLL are involved in coordinating P2P within an academic programme. They are involved in training and supporting peer mentors, coordinating actives as part of the programme and developing the programme further.
  • Academic Support: There needs to be academic commitment within a programme or department for P2P to be established. At least one staff member needs to  be assigned to be the academic link between Student Life and Learning, the student mentors and the academic programme/ department.
  • Student commitment: P2P cannot run without the support of the students who are willing to be trained and carry out the role of peer mentor, which is a significant undertaking.
