From work undertaken by MSOR and Sigma it has become apparent that students studying for mathematics degrees need more support beyond that available for the transition from school to undergraduate studies. Evidence suggests that peer support mechanisms can help progression and both motivate and encourage students with their studies. To help develop this approach, the MSOR has commissioned the development of a Good Practice Guide for Undergraduate Peer Support for level 2 mathematics students and above. The guide will consider current practices used in HE and the challenges and constraints of implementing such mechanisms. the nature of support either face to face or by e-support. The preparation of the guide will involve carrying out a survey of current practices within UK HEIs and CETLs. The guide will also be informed by conferences, seminars and workshops such as today’s.
