It also involves speaking at assemblies and sessions held at schools, sixth forms, and colleges about their personal experience of being a student as part of our 'Next Steps' education session. The sessions cover budgeting and money management, independent living skills (such as cooking and cleaning), finding accommodation (both at university and in private sector), student life and university realities, as well as sources of support. We have found that pupils respond very well to hearing about university from a current student, and will ask questions that they may not feel teachers can answer. Peer educators are required to have good verbal communication good interpersonal skills the willingness to work as part of a team. Are well organised, reliable and friendly. Additionally, they should be willing to listen to the ideas of others and have personal experience of living away from home. It is desirable for peer educators to have knowledge of working in a democratic environment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCl5QhIFnMU
