The purpose of a peer coach is to guide and support, for example, transfer students (students whose right to study is transferred from one UAS to another or from one programme within TAMK to another) or students who are resuming their studies, are at a turning point in their studies or need sparring. We especially want to reach older students who could benefit from peer coaching.
In peer coaching, the coaches get to put their own strengths and possible previous guidance experience to good use. Peer coaching can be realized as, for example, both individual and group meetings or event organizing. Peer coaches get to plan their activities together with their coachees.
Peer coaching awards 2 credits, but the number of credits can be increased, depending on how active you are. In addition to trainings and coaching, a learning diary must be submitted to get the credits. Peer coach applications are open every spring.
