University of Bedfordshire
Becoming a PAL Leader is likely to be one of the most rewarding and valuable experiences that you will have whilst being a student at University of Bedfordshire.
As an experienced student who has already been through the first year and survived it, you will be in a unique position to pass on your wisdom, experiences and tips to those who are new to the university.
The most important attributes a PAL Leader needs are empathy and approachability; a friendly face that has been through what new students are going though.
Recruitment takes place during the second term of the academic year and all students interested in becoming a leader should apply via the registration form. You will then be contacted and asked to attend a recruitment session.
There is compulsory PAL Leader initial training which all students have to complete prior to becoming a PAL Leader.
When we recruit students to become PAL Leaders we need students to be able to demonstrate the following qualities and attributes:
You do not necessarily need to be expert in all of these things, as PAL and the training we give you will help you to develop and improve.
What we do need to see is that you meet them all, even if it a basic level, and that you have the commitment and enthusiasm to put your heart and soul into PAL and into getting the most out of the experience.
