How does the scheme work?

The SALT scheme ran from 2011-2018. Each year, around 50 students were employed as part of the scheme.

SALTs worked in partnership with staff on projects aiming to develop and improve the learning and teaching experience for students.

Each SALT team was given a project brief - they then worked together, in partnership with staff, to shape and deliver their project.

Each team had a Lead SALT to oversee the team's progress throughout the year. 

See the projects page for information on recent SALT projects.

SALT Teams

Each Faculty, along with some professional services, have SALTs working with them on a project each year.

Skills SALT 2016-17

"My team were really wonderful people and so I really enjoyed getting to know them all. I really enjoyed overseeing the work done and in particular getting to present the work we had done knowing that I had had a hand in it. We got amazing feedback from our supervisors that made me incredibly proud of my team and our project."
