PASS is a co-curricular activity which runs in areas of the University alongside Level 7/1st Year of some programs. PASS leaders from higher years facilitate the learning of L7 students in timetables classes.
The student will have worked as a Leader in Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS). In completing this they have completed an intensive 2 day training course, worked in a team to prepare classes for first year students, and facilitated junior students’ learning in timetabled, co-curricular classes over at least one trimester.
In achieving this Award the student has demonstrated professionalism, facilitation skills, team work, and has developed their self-efficacy.
