School Mentoring - applications open now!

School Mentoring offers the opportunity for students to get involved in local primary and secondary schools across Cheshire and the Wirral.  Our mentors work one-to-one and in groups to support school pupils with academic and social-emotional problem solving.  We look for mentors who can inspire children and young people to reach their full potential as part of the University's commitment to Widening Participation.

 

The School Mentoring programme has four main aims to help school pupils:

  1. Raise their standard of academic performance;

  2. Raise their awareness of Higher Education opportunities;

  3. Develop study skills in order to improve their application towards school work;

  4. Develop greater self-esteem, motivation, confidence and persistence.

Primary School Mentoring

In primary schools, Mentors aim to help improve reading ages, raise aspirations, prepare students for the transition into secondary education and develop greater self-esteem, motivation, confidence, persistence and application.

Secondary School Mentoring

In secondary schools they offer practical, unbiased, friendly advice, help with organisational skills and time management, help with school work or study and revision skills and help young people to explore their post GCSE options.

APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN NOW BUT WILL CLOSE ON 26TH OCTOBER - SO APPLY NOW!
