RAISE Buddy Scheme 2022-23

Applications to become part of the RAISE Buddy Scheme from 2022-23 are now open!

The RAISE buddying scheme aims to facilitate communication and collaboration across our members, as well as offering you relevant opportunities for continued professional development and networking.

Throughout the year, you will have the opportunity to meet your buddy and other participants in the scheme at RAISE events. We will also provide opportunities for you to feed back about the success of your buddying match(es) and the impact of the scheme on your professional development.

Applications close on Monday 11 July 2022.

Who can apply for the RAISE Buddy Scheme?

We welcome applications from anyone with an interest in student engagement in tertiary education. This includes students, academic staff and members of professional services. We also encourage applications from those based internationally, as well as in the UK.

What are the benefits of the RAISE Buddy Scheme?

The major benefits of joining the RAISE Buddy Scheme are:

  • Having the opportunity to connect with others who have a mutual interest in student engagement, discuss experiences in the field or find out about student engagement more widely

  • Having the opportunity to learn from other contexts (e.g. people in different institutions, countries and careers or student stages)

  • Invitations to events throughout the year on themes related to student engagement topics that Buddies are most interested in

  • Potential opportunity for cross-institutional collaboration on small projects or journal articles

When will I be matched with a Buddy?

We aim to contact everyone who has expressed an interest in becoming part of the RAISE Buddy Scheme during August 2022 with details of their match.
