Student Peer Programme Organiser (SPPO) Workflow, 2021-22

The Student Peer Programme Organiser (SPPO) are students (normally 3rd years) who offer to organise/run a peer scheme. They coordinate the peer mentors to provide this support to mentees. 

This 'workflow' is a stage-by-stage training and development process for our Student Peer Programme Organisers. It provides resources and tasks which are essential for the smooth running of a peer scheme, development opportunity, and allows for the contextualising of experience running the scheme. If you are looking for the Peer Mentor Workflow, please click here.

If you complete all stages of this workflow by the end of term 3 in the 2021-22 Academic Year (June 2022), you will have your role as a Student Peer Programme Organiser, 2021/22 listed on your Higher Education Achievement Record. Click here to find out more about HEAR.
