University Student Education Fellowship awarded to Skills@Library advisor

Students who want to develop their leadership skills will benefit from a University Student Education Fellowship awarded to Skills@Library advisor Julia Braham.

The award will be used to develop a set of online materials to teach students how best to take part in Peer Assisted Learning (PAL), helping them to support other students in their studies. PAL develops the key skills most valued by employers such as teamwork, time management, written and verbal communication.  

This award is only one of four full University Student Education Fellowships presented this year. The University's fellowship scheme recognises and rewards excellence in teaching and supports learning, by awarding special grants for projects designed to enhance the student experience.

The Library's new PAL resources will complement the existing Skills@Library employability material already available:

  • Employability at Leeds - building up your skills and planning your career
  • The 3Rs of planning
  • Articulating your strengths for a better career result
