The Reach Partnership are excited to launch a new e-mentoring pilot scheme. Available to both city and county schools, the scheme seeks to match current Year 10 and 11 students who have an SPLD such as dyslexia with HE students from across the Reach partners.
Students will attend an interactive two hour workshop, available as an in-school event, where they will learn study skills. These skills will be built on and expanded with a 2-3 month e-mentoring programme where students work with assigned mentors to put their skills practice into practice in their current studies. Please note students must be referred to take part in the E-mentoring as outlined in the eligibility criteria.
The benefits of e- mentoring are vast for the young people involved. To see examples of how mentoring has affected school students please check out the videos below from our platform provider Brightside

The scheme is a collaborative effort with De Montfort University providing delivery of the HE Study Skills workshop. The workshop is delivered by Leanne Herbert, our REACH disability officer who has extensive experience working with young people with SPLDS.
