What we have achieved…
Our e-Mentoring project provides disadvantaged students with advice and support they need to help them with their studies and their future career plans.
Through our exit surveys, we measure how far young people involved in our e-Mentoring project feel that the project has made a difference to them, and this information is supported by Focus Groups with some of the young people involved.
Over the course of our 3 year Big Lottery funded project, over 400 students took part in our project – this is the difference the project made to those students!
91% felt that through the project they had been enabled to pursue a career of their choice
73% had either applied to or would apply in the future to university
88% feel they improved their study skills
80% had improved their communication skills
77% had improved their confidence
92% had an improved understanding of the application process into life sciences
80% feel they got advice on exam preparation and revision techniques
79% were advised on subject selection
53% got advice on personal statements and CV’s
