Maths support within HE has been at the forefront of many Learner Development agendas in recent years and it is no different at ___. The institution seeks to provide beneficial resources to students that assist them in their successful studies and recognise that the journey towards an absolute maths support provision has only just begun.
The aim of this pilot project is to mobilise students to offer peer tutor support in ‘buddy’ roles, in particular providing numeracy support across the institution in an innovative and engaging manner. Training provided will enable the ‘buddies’ to facilitate weekly sessions, attended by students who wish to seek support with their studies from peers.
