Year 11 students from local schools have successfully completed a mentoring project organised by the Educational Opportunities team.
The 20 students, who are from a Yemeni and Somali background, worked to increase their confidence and improve their GCSE grades, whilst gaining information about the options for their next steps in education.
Funded and co-organised by the Liverpool Ethnic Minority Travellers Achievement Service (EMTAS), trained undergraduates from various subject areas, worked with the students in confidence building workshops and fortnightly mentoring sessions, allowing them to bring work which they found challenging to work one-on-one.
Pete Doyle, Educational Opportunities Officer, said: “The students were able to ask questions about the university experience, including financial pressures and living away from home. Attendance at the sessions was exceptional with the group regularly giving up their evenings to attend.”
As part of the programme, the students are able to progress on to the Scholars project, a Year 12/13 initiative, designed to give students who are thinking of applying to this University more information and skills, as well as offering a generous bursary and UCAS point reduction for all successful candidates.
