Pathways has run several projects in Northampton connecting Year 12 and FE college students with undergraduate mentors who provide personalised information, advice and guidance about higher education. Pathways has also used Brightside’s Sector Insight mentoring to enhance pre-16 students’ understanding of different careers and the range of educational routes they can take.
‘The HE Explore model truly works when both mentees and mentors engage with each other. At this point the mentees are able to fully explore all HE options with a relatable mentor who has been through a similar experience.’
Sam McKay, Pathways co-ordinator
‘It was an incredibly valuable and useful experience.’
