Stage 3

The Academic Lead (with support from an Administrative Coordinator) to recruit potential PASS Leaders, timetable the PASS sessions and assign participants to PASS groups.

Stage 4

The PASS team invite potential leaders to a ‘PASS Expectations Workshop’. Leaders then complete the application process and receive the full training.

Support for PASS

All PASS pilot schemes are supported and run by the PASS team in conjunction with academic colleagues within the Colleges.
Each pilot is supported by the PASS team through; training PASS leaders; observing PASS sessions; debriefing with leaders; and an evaluation strategy. 

At the end of the module the PASS team will evaluate the PASS pilots in conjunction with Academic Leads, as set out in the project evaluation strategy.
