FBE Hosts Morning Tea & Certificate Award Ceremony for Senior Peer Mentors
On Wednesday 18th October 2017, the Faculty of Business and Economics hosted a Morning Tea for Senior Peer Mentors and presented them with certificates to recognise their efforts in making the learning journey of their mentees easier and successful. The Senior Peer Mentoring Programme offers academic support to students of various disciplines in the Faculty. It comprises Senior Peers who mentor or guide students in their courses. The Senior Peer Mentors are high achieving students and take on the mentoring opportunity to create awareness amongst students on how to approach and cope with aspects of their study programme. Through this programme Peer Mentors have the opportunity to nurture their leadership qualities and skills, and in turn empower the students they mentor to develop their own learning and take on mentoring roles. For semester 2 2017, there were 30 mentors altogether.
