The Barnsley Mentoring scheme works with volunteers from local business and community organisations to support young people aged 14-16 to realise their potential.
The mentoring support is to enable students to make informed choices to support progression to post 16-learning and help raise awareness, aspirations and attainment. School will nominate students for the programme and provide background information on the learners.
The programme usually lasts for a year, with mentors meeting the student once a month and once a week at exam times.
