This interactive session invites Peer Support Staff and Student Coordinators to learn more about the importance of managing money and therefore how you can help to inform and support the students within your own scheme. The workshop will begin by looking at why money is important and the best ways in which to speak to students about it.
You will get the chance to explore the resources that the University has available for students in order to help with managing their money such as MyManchester, the University’s website and other forms of software. After exploring these resources with other Student Coordinators, you will then work together to think about how you can share this information with your Leaders or Mentors and therefore support the first year students within your scheme.
Additionally, there will be time to meet other Coordinators to share challenges and good practice.
