This year we are hosting two optional induction period challenge for Peer Mentors and their mentees. You can take part in one, both, or none at all – it is entirely up to you!

For this activity, you will work in your mentee groups when it suits you, your group and your timetables. The challenge runs between the 20 of September and the 15 of October, the deadline for submission.

There is a £200 cash prize for the winning team and £100 and £50 cash prizes for second and third place, respectively.

The three finalists will also be invited to present at the Global Student Sustainability Conference in March 2022.

First steps

Once you have been allocated to a mentee group, your Peer Mentor will be responsible for organising a kick-off meeting with your group to discuss and to start work on your idea. We recommend that Peer Mentors set up a Microsoft Teams group for their team to meet online to discuss the activity and share information and ideas.

To help groups tackle the challenge, you have access to teaching materials and guides which will be released here during the induction period.

If you have any questions about this activity, please do not hesitate to contact us on peer.mentoring@ncl.ac.uk.
