Recruitment for PASS leaders begins for 2013

A PASS session

Applications are now sought from high-achieving students who are eligible to become leaders in the University's PASS (Peer Assisted Study Session) Program.

The PASS Program is an academic assistance program which targets traditionally challenging academic subjects or courses. Led by senior students called PASS Leaders, the PASS program provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated study sessions, to all students studying in that unit.

To become a PASS leader applicants must have received of a distinction or above within a PASS supported unit as well as an overall credit average or above.

PASS Leaders receive training and are supported in their role to deliver one to two one-hour sessions each week.

Information sessions, running for approximately half an hour, will be held in September for all students interested in becoming a PASS Leader. These sessions will provide further information about the PASS Program and the application process. We strongly recommend that anyone interest in becoming a PASS leader attends one of these sessions.

Information sessions will be held at the following times:

Hobart: Thursday 27th September, (2 sessions) 12pm - Centenary Lecture Theatre, Sandy Bay and 1pm - Social Science Room 210, Sandy Bay

Launceston: Tuesday 25th September, (2 sessions) 12pm and 1pm, Flex Space, Sir Raymond Ferrall Centre, Newnham
