Abstract

This paper provides an overview of a Peer and Community Personal Development Planning (PC PDP) programme which has been developed and implemented across four departments in the Faculties of Engineering and Science at the University of Strathclyde. A key aspect of the programme is that it has been developed by a team of students and academic staff with integrated support from Peer Mentors (senior students), Learning Technology Enhancement (LTE), the Careers Service and Industry partners. Each of the stakeholders and activities are brought together through a 'tight-loose' model. We will describe the survey of stakeholders and subsequent development of the PC PDP programme, the implementation which followed and initial evaluation of the PC PDP programme. We will conclude with the planned enhancement of PC PDP which will take place in the next phase of this project.
