How do I become a PASS Leader?

 

We offer the opportunity to support others as a PASS Leader to those who study with a degree which has a PASS scheme. 

So that you are fully equipped and supported in your role, we provide 3 compulsory training sessions which you must complete before you run your first session. 

Introduction to PASS (Intro to PASS)

Introduction to PASS the first training session and is designed to make you aware of the great benefits, commitments and expectations of being a PASS Leader. It will introduce the key concepts of facilitation and how a session should run. 

The training is comprised of a one and a half hour face to face session which is run by the Student Engagement Graduate Interns in the second semester, and a 30-minute online Blackboard course unit which you will be signed up to once completing the face to face session.

PASS in Practice

PASS in Practice is one full day training session with students from all disciplines across the University. You will have the opportunity to network, share experiences and collaborate with people from other schemes whilst learning about how to deliver PASS and the techniques needed to have a successful session. This session also has a 30-minute online Blackboard course for you to complete.

It is typically in early summer after exams and is run by a National PASS Centre trained Supervisor. We do provide additional sessions in early September for students studying abroad who cannot make the main training period.

PASS in Your Discipline

The PASS in Your Discipline session is typically in September and will be with all PASS Leaders from your scheme. It is led by your Graduate Intern along with input from your PASS Student Coordinators. It's a great time to plan your first session with your co-leader, as well as planning for the future and working towards developing your scheme.

Becoming a PASS Leader is a great opportunity to both refresh your knowledge of previous year’s content and provide invaluable support and advice to those who are new to your course.

If you are interested in becoming a PASS Leader, contact your Student or Staff Coordinators for your scheme.

Once you have completed these sessions, you will be contacted about your PASS in Your Discipline meeting.
