Student leaders are chosen through a selection process, which is carried out by the scheme co-ordinators in liaison with programme staff. All successful PAL leaders are then expected to attend training sessions and regular debrief meetings which explore facilitation techniques, agenda setting and challenging areas of the curriculum.
In the academic year 2017/18 the University of Winchester ran PAL schemes on seven programmes, with 25 second and third year students leading weekly PAL sessions for their first year peers. It is anticipated that the number of programmes will increase in September 2018.
