Peer Mentoring is now in its seventh year, with mentors supporting mentees through every step of their Undergraduate study at Aston. It is a positive and flexible scheme that encourages students to share experiences, to be proactive, take control of their own learning, and to make the most of their time at Aston.
Awards were given to the following mentors, who had offered outstanding support to the students they mentored:
Ashlee McIntosh- Pre-Entry E-Mentor of the Year
Tsvetelina Nikolova – Transition Mentor of the Year
Michael Batko - Placement Mentor of the Year
Anastasija Gerasjuka - Outstanding Mentor of the Year
We also gave a special mention to Denisa Dumitrascu, who was the winner of the Outstanding Mentor of the Year award last year, and whose mentee nominated her for the award again!
This year the achievements of the students involved in the Postgraduate Mentoring Scheme were also celebrated. The scheme was developed in 2011 and is designed to enhance the integration and transition of newly arriving postgraduate students by matching them with more experienced postgraduate peer mentors.
Postgraduate students from all schools of study attended the event and were awarded with mentoring certificates to celebrate their contribution to the Postgraduate Mentoring Scheme and postgraduate community.
