Year 12 Study Skills Coaching

This scheme trains undergraduates to coach Year 12 students in effective study skills over five sessions. 

The Widening Participation team are running this coaching scheme for the second year. Working with our partner Sixth Forms, the scheme pairs undergraduate trained coaches with Year 12 students. It is designed for students who are finding it hard adjusting to the academic commitment of A level study and who would value help and support in the form of 121 focused sessions. The sessions are designed around a set coaching framework. The aim is to provide Year 12 students with the support and strategies which are effective to improve study. Successful coach applicants are ideally students who have themselves experienced the support of a mentoring or coaching scheme, or those with similar experiences of overcoming academic challenges successfully.  This scheme is not subject related however you may be paired with students who have a similar subject interests. All sessions will take place at the participating Sixth Forms.
