Now recruiting Skills Leaders!

Looking for a volunteering opportunity that fits in with your commitments and helps with your studies? Why not try training to become a Skills Leader based within the Brynmor Jones Library! Skills Leaders support the Skills Team to help students improve their academic study skills. As a Skills Leader, you will be given training and support to learn how to facilitate and design learning activities as well as learning about the study skills resources available to all students. Most of our Skills Leaders find that this not only helps develop their experience, but it also helps them with their own study too. Sign up to our training session on Wednesday 31st January from 1-8pm.
