Students Skills Development

Student Skills Development is a section within Student Support and Guidance, which specialises in helping students to develop their skills and make the most of their time at the University of Chester.

We offer opportunities for students to make a real difference to the University and the local community whilst developing the kind of transferrable skills that employers are looking for through:

  • School Mentoring
  • Peer Assisted Learning Leaders (PALL)
  • A wide range of volunteering opportunities from our one day ‘Give it a Go’ programme to long term opportunities such as Child Line and the Citizens’ Advice Bureau We also offer opportunities for academic development through:
  • Dedicated Study Skills support for help with issues such as essay planning and structuring, reflective writing, referencing, revision strategies and exam techniques
  • Peer Assisted Learning Workshops (pilots running in partnership with Psychology and Early Childhood Studies)

So, if you would like to develop your academic skills, develop your employability skills, give something back to our community and enhance your student experience, you can drop in to our office, in Beswick 010/2.
