Year 9 and 10 Gifted and Talented Mentoring Programme
Our Year 9 and 10 programme seeks to raise the attainment of gifted and talented young people in secondary schools across London. By providing one-to-one support we hope to enable pupils to develop the attitudes, skills and confidence they need to succeed at GCSE. Mentors will help mentees with their current school work and set realistic targets for their mentee to achieve over the year.
Year 12 Gifted and Talented Mentoring Programme
Our Year 12 programme aims to maximise the potential of gifted A Level students, by stretching them academically during their first year at college. This programme will help mentees develop the necessary research and analytical skills required for academic study, as well as gain an insight into what higher education has to offer. UCL mentors will work with small groups of students, and meet with their group regularly throughout one academic year. Mentors will be expected to devise short subject-specific seminars for their small group which willl push students to think outside of their A Level syllabus.
City and Islington College Mentoring Programme
Our City and Islington College programme supports Year 12 and 13 students through classroom support at after school and lunch time subject specific clubs. UCL mentors would provide help with homework and coursework to students at 'drop-in' classes at the college. For example, lunchtime Maths Drop-In Clinics to help Year 12 and 13 studying Maths/Further Maths at AS and A Level.
We would like to hear more about why you are interested in joining the UCL Mentoring Programme and what skills and experience you believe you could bring to the role. We understand that not all applicants will have experience of working with young people or volunteering in general. If this is the case for you, please use question 2 and 3 to explain why you are interested in gaining experience in both of these areas.
Please complete the following three questions as fully as possible. (Maximum of 200 words per question)
Please provide contact details for at least one referee to support your application to join the UCL Mentoring Programme. Your referee(s) should know you well and come from current or previous employment, voluntary work or academic studies. We are unable to accept references from family members or friends.
Anyone working as a mentor through a UCL-run scheme must hold a current CRB disclosure applied for through UCL.
If you already hold a CRB disclosure applied for through UCL, due to previous experience as a tutor or mentor, or as a requirement of the subject you study (i.e. Medicine, Speech Sciences, Child Health etc), then you will not be required to apply again. Please bring your CRB with you to your consultation/interview. (Returning mentors do not need to bring their CRB forms to the consultations)
If you hold a CRB disclosure that was applied for through another institute or organisation, then you will be required to apply for another one through UCL if you wish to become a mentor.
You can collect a CRB application form from the Front Lodge by the Main Gates of UCL on Gower Street, Monday to Friday from 9.30am - 4.30pm. Alternatively, you can pick up a CRB from our stand at the UCLU Welcome Fair or at a consultation meeting.
Please note that delays in application will mean delays in placing you as a mentor.
You will not be charged for making an application for a CRB disclosure through this scheme.
Thank you for completing this application form.
We will be in touch in October to invite you to a consultation meeting.
