Light Up Learning is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) providing one-to-one mentoring for high school students in Edinburgh and the Lothians. The programme has been successfully operating in partnership with Lasswade High School since February 2015, with Castlebrae Community High School since October 2018, and is currently working to expand into other local schools.

The programme aims to address issues of unequal access to education and disengagement in the classroom by creating low-stress, supportive, and playful learning environments for young people who have experienced disadvantage. We place each student in charge of their own learning and give them the resources, skills, and contacts they need to achieve their potential.
