In this presentation, we will discuss the skills the student staff in our Learning & Curriculum Support unit have developed in their academic support roles. As current Learning Peer Helpers, we recognize the importance of connecting our para-professional experiences to our future career aspirations. We will share results of a survey asking student staff to highlight the skills they deem most valuable for their future careers, strategies to support the development and articulation of skills, and current struggles in the online environment. We will suggest ways in which supervisors can further support their student staff in developing their transferable skills and preparing for life after graduation.
