The SLC's Writing and Learning Peers renew tutoring certification

Peer Education Program re-certified

The College Reading and Learning Association's (CRLA)  International Tutoring Training Program Certification has re-certified the Student Learning Commons' Writing and Learning Peer Education Program through 2023, providing a continuing endorsement of the quality of training that the Writing and Learning Peer Educators receive. 

The CRLA is an internationally recognized certification body, providing tutoring program certification since 1989; there are currently more than 1100 post-secondary tutoring programs certified through the CRLA in the United States and worldwide.  The SLC's Learning and Writing Peer Program has been continuously certified with CRLA since 2009, at levels 1 and 2 (Advanced). 

New name: "Writing and Learning Peer Education Program"

With the current recertification comes a name change of the program to the "Writing and Learning Peer Education Program," reflecting the fact that writing support is the primary service provided by the Peers to SFU students.

Become a Peer

The Writing and Learning Peer Educator Program is currently recruiting for new Peers to start in January.  For more information or to apply, please see http://myinvolvement.sfu.ca through October 30.
