While at University, I was a Senior Trainer with the National Student Learning Programme (NSLP) - a DfES-supported scheme to train Higher and Further Education students in key and transferable skills.
This page contains background information about the Programme.
What is NSLP?
Through the National Student Learning Programme, the NUS is making a significant contribution to the development of key skills in Higher Education.
What did NSLP hope to acheive?
NSLP was set up with six objectives:
Who gives the training?
Each year the Students' Union recruits a team of students to go on a residential training event where they are trained to be trainers. Students from different universities come together and are taught to develop the ability to present an idea to a group using a variety of teaching and presentation methods - understanding different people's learning styles. They then go back to their universities and work together to develop a series of training events tailored to meet the needs of students in their university.
What subjects are covered in NSLP sessions?
Each university that is a part of the NSLP programme develops their own training sessions, so that they can be tailored to the needs of their own students. NUS does produce resource packs to aid the development of core sessions. The general focus of the programme is transferable key skills.
Examples of subjects include:
Who pays for this?
NSLP was started by the NUS, who provide the headquarters and coordinators for the scheme. The scheme is also funded by a variety of companies and organisations from around the UK. Much of the funding comes from the Department for Education.
