Abstract

This article reports on an evaluation of the first year of the Student Writing Mentor Scheme, a peer tutoring initiative developed by the Write Now Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) (see http://www.writenow.ac.uk for details). The Write Now CETL aims to enrich students' learning experiences through the development of innovative, evidence-based provision focused on writing for assessment. It celebrates and promotes student writing in the disciplines, enabling students to develop academic and disciplinary identities as empowered, confident writers.
