Bahrain Polytechnic conducted PASS (Peer Assisted Study Scheme) Leader training sessions on March 3rd and March 10th 2015 at the campus. PASS is an internationally recognized student-to-student study support scheme.
The aim of the training was to prepare this year’s student leaders for the role. PASS leaders are degree students with leadership potential from different programs of study, such as Business, ICT, and Engineering, who have been nominated by their instructors to facilitate discussion around topics of study and promote active learning.
“The aim of the PASS program is to provide an opportunity for students to develop their knowledge and employability skills outside the classroom environment.” stated Mohammed Al Daylami, a Learning Advisor of the Polytechnic.
Dr. Mohamed Al Aseeri, Acting CEO, said: “Teaching our students to act as mentors is important because it prepares them to become leaders. This type of learning is supported internationally and we hope to continue to support this programme.”
