Structured Social and Peer Learning (SSPL) models
Building learning communities through embedding social integration and peer learning into the student experience.
In Welcome Week, students may often fail to take advantage of the informal opportunities that Schools offer them to meet and get to know their peers. As social integration is such a key factor in a successful student experience, it is important to build this into inductions instead of leaving it as an ‘add on’ option.
Structured Social and Peer Learning (SSPL) models are able to effectively support this social integration because they offer structured group activities that can be easily woven into existing induction programmes.
