Go Further Mentoring Programme

Event Fallback Image

Mentoring is a proven to work due to the level of intensity, personalisation and relationship development involved. Our Go Further mentoring programme was developed in consultation with learners. It is informed by the DOTS decision-making methodology.

A current HE student will come into your school to deliver a structured mentoring programme. The programme is delivered to a group of 8-10 learners over an 8 week period. Each session lasts 45 minutes – 1 hour, and ideally needs to take place in a quiet space with a whiteboard.

The  sessions cover the following topics*:

  • Building relationships and setting the scene
  • Life after Y11/Post-16 options
  • Intro to HE
  • Decision making
  • Student Finance and Student Life
  • How to be an ace student
  • Reflection and next steps

Mentoring is most appropriate for learners who are open to finding out more about higher education and who have the potential to achieve at least five GCSEs at grade 4 or above and progress to higher education.


*This programme will undergo a review in summer 2019, therefore topics are subject to change
