Student Trainer Peer-Led Workshops 

The Skills Training Programme offers workshops delivered by our hardworking team of Student Peer-led Trainers. This is a team of students who have gone through a robust but rewarding Train the Trainer accredited course after a tough interview process.

Our Student Trainers deliver both evening and lunchtime peer to peer workshops on topics that matter to you! The workshops are designed to encourage participation to share knowledge, experiences and solutions to everyday problems that you're likely to come across. Meet the team.

Check out the Skills Training programme to find out about all the exciting new workshops they will be running in the next Academic Year. 

If you’d like to push your presentation skills to the next level, you could apply to become a Student Trainer yourself.
