by the Student Journey Team
In sport, the role of a coach is to support the people participating, reach their full potential. And when it comes to academic coaching it’s just the same!
During Block Zero, you’ll be put into coaching groups hosted in a Microsoft Teams site. Your group will be made up of around ten students within your programme areas and you’ll be able to meet up and work with your group virtually.
Once Teaching Block One and Two start, you’ll then be timetabled to meet up with six other groups of ten students, every two weeks for an hour and a half. During these sessions, the team coach that’s been assigned to you will present a pre-recorded lecture to you based around one of the 5 secrets to success. You’ll then break off into your coaching group to complete activities which will build on that theme and help you reflect on your experiences.
By working in a group and with your coach, you’ll be able to support each other to seek solutions to any issues you might be experiencing. You’ll also have the chance to build on your learnings from Block Zero, gain confidence and feel empowered to make the most of your opportunities at UWE.
We hope you enjoy working with your coaching groups and enjoy all that university life has to offer!
