Mentoring at its Very Best
On Wednesday, 29 January, 41 Year 12 students attended a two hour training session to become Year 12 mentors in English and Mathematics.
The first hour involved Mr Willow, in Mathematics, and Miss Pepper, in English, providing training sessions to support the mentoring of the Year 11 students.
This was then followed by Level 2 Safeguarding Training, to ensure that the students in Year 12 are able to understand the expectations when working with other students.
The Year 11 Mentoring Programme is a unique project aimed at providing a personalised approach to support individual students by those who have just completed their GCSE examinations themselves. Not only do they provide empathetic understanding, but are able to support students to become resilient and to provide academic expertise within these two core subjects.
