Brightside, with support from Refugee Education UK, have developed a 1:1
mentoring programme to support young refugees aged 16-26 in the FE college system as they
navigate these unique and complex set of challenges with their next steps.
Brightside founder & Chair of the Board of Trustees, John Berry, will be stepping down from his role at the end of this month after an amazing 18 years and having supported well over 140,000 young people.
Brightside Project Manager Tom Greenidge describes the launch of our mentoring project with Pathways at Northampton College, and shares advice on the best ways to get FE students onboard and engaged with projects.
We’re excited to be joining the Skills Builder Partnership, which brings together educators, employers and other skills-building organisations around a common language and approach to help young people develop eight essential skills they need to succeed.
