Form Tutor Mentoring 2013-14

Students will get the opportunity to receive mentoring by their Form Tutor on a specific day every second week throughout the academic year. They will participate in the mentoring programme in small groups with their Tutor and as a result will get a lot of individual guidance and support. The Form Tutor mentoring programme will allow students to set and evaluate targets, talk about their future outside school and prepare them for the world of work, etc.
