Model communications for learners
This learner guide has been authored by Queen Mary learners involved in the LEA project at the university. It is a useful resource to use when introducing LEA to learners.
The following resources were circulated at Queen Mary in September 2021 as a consistent method of communicating with learners about the use of LEA. Each template can be personalised and used at different stages of an intervention programme (levels 1-3 of escalation). There is also an introductory template explaining to learners the purpose of LEA (level 0).
