Students Win Life-Changing Mentor Scheme

Four students from Etone College in Nuneaton have been selected to take
part in a life-changing mentoring scheme with a world-class athlete mentor. The students have been chosen for the AQA Unlocking Potential programme, run by the exam board and education charity AQA and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.

The young people will be mentored by former Paralympic Skiier, Anna Turney. Etone is one of 20 schools selected to take part in this year’s programme AQA Unlocking Potential provides mentoring for young people aged 11 to 19 who have faced personal challenges or disadvantages.

Students are paired with specially trained mentors who have competed at world-class sporting events – including the Olympics and Paralympics – and have overcome their own significant personal challenges. Anna Turney will provide personal mentoring for the students over eight months to help unlock hidden attitudes and skills. They’ll also help the students to deliver a social action project towards the end of the programme.

It is great to have pupils back in school again. Currently planning our Year 11 careers interviews where we will be able to help our pupils to find their career path and assist with their onward journey after exams.

Fantastic to see that last week’s home learning activity has allowed this student to gain inspiration from watching the Nadiya Bakes TV show and try out one of her recipes for himself. The results look excellent! 👏 https://twitter.com/ajbind/status/1307365580798922753
