NEWS: School in Shropshire launches online mentoring for pupils
6 May 2021
Concord College in Acton Burnell have launched a mentoring scheme for pupils, with the aim that senior students will mentor young students, to provide expertise to other students. An article from the Shropshire Star describes how the mentoring scheme will work:
"They were nominated by heads of departments in the disciplines of mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics, having received online training from EasyA, an online tutoring outlet, in the use of the app, mentoring skills and safeguarding.
Students described being part of the project as "truly humbling" and said it would help to bridge the gap between mentors and mentees during unprecedented times when social distancing and bubbles have limited healthy student interactaction between year groups."
