> Expectations – what should your students expect when they join a university programme? What is it like to be a first year student in a new university setting?
> Self-awareness – what are your students’ strengths and areas of development when it comes to working alone and with others?
> Confidence and resilience – supporting your students to speak confidently about themselves, their ambitions and their learning. Developing your students’ understanding of resilience and how to motivate themselves and others.
