One Progression Mentor is allocated to each curriculum area. Progression Mentors are here to help students to reach their full potential by offering support and guidance throughout their time at college.
Through weekly tutorials, Progression Mentors create content and enriching activities outside of the student’s curriculum to enable them to develop the resilience and skills needed to succeed.
They also offer pastoral support, helping students to remove barriers to learning and move forward in their studies. This could be anything from safeguarding and mental health support, to housing issues, support with funding, work experience, and liaising with social workers and family workers and much more.
