These types of mentoring schemes tend to be something that you do in addition to your studies. You can be a mentor outside the university, participating in the community, at local schools or to particular groups of young people. Helping them make with particular subject areas and decisions about what subjects to study and what to do with their future.
You get to feel good about being a role model to local young people and you gain experience of teaching in a community environment depending on the particular scheme.
The scheme has been a really good opportunity for me to develop my one-to-one communication skills... For me, the best part has been knowing I am capable of making a difference.Student
The Mentoring Core Subjects at our local schools scheme involves Oxford Brookes students working in local schools with year 11 students who live in the local area. The school students gain confidence in the subjects they are struggling with, and as a tutor you can make a big difference to their lives.
