PEER MENTORING and tutoring in schools 

At Franklin Scholars we believe in the power of young people helping young people.

 

We know that for every pupil experiencing challenges in school, be they academic or socio-emotional, there is an older pupil in the same school who is very well placed to help. And that that older pupil, in acting as a mentor, coach or tutor to the younger person, will develop a whole host of skills and habits that are crucial to their own success in school and beyond.

Evidence indicates that well-structured peer-mentoring programmes with tailored training, support and management of the mentors have great and long-lasting impact.

At Franklin Scholars we are specialists in implementing high-impact peer mentoring programmes in schools that deliver the following benefits for students:
