Event providers: Greater Manchester Higher
This summer mentoring project has been developed to support care experienced learners with their transition from school to college. We know this can be a tough time with so much change and moving on from school can be really daunting.
Young people will be matched up with a Care Leaver Ambassador/Champion from GM Higher network as a mentor. Ideally, we will try to align similar career ambitions, subject interests, hobbies etc. Mentors and Mentees will work through a loosely structured programme of mentoring content- intended to support transition to college and build confidence in the following things:
- Transition to college- New ways of learning (online), independent study, getting there
- Settling in- Making friends, getting to college, wellbeing etc.
- Making the most of opportunities- part-time work, careers events, social activities
