Student Mentoring Programme

Dudley Education Business Partnership is seeking Volunteers to expand the Student Mentoring Programme currently running in a number of local secondary schools.

Mentors visit 14-15 year old students during school hours to support those capable of gaining GCSE grades at A*-C, but are currently under-achieving. The aim is to provide a non-judgemental, listening ear and the benefit of life experience.

You would not be expected to do the student’s homework for them!

A free training programme and ongoing support is available to all mentors.

Reading Partners/Right to Read

Every child has the Right to Read but not every child has the opportunity.  Our goal is to raise the region’s standards of literacy to exceed national levels through a programme of one to one reading support, delivered by trained volunteers from participating businesses.

What is Right to Read?

Right to Read is a campaign to promote the importance of literacy and seeks to engage volunteers from business to become reading partners with 7-11 year old, primary school children.
