Mentoring for Year 8 and Year 9.
Our core service involves training university students to mentor learners aged 12-14 as they make their GCSE option choices. Mentoring sessions take place either in the classroom or online depending on the needs of the school. Mentors run six sessions each autumn and spring term with small groups of mentees to provide a learner-centred approach.
Each session focuses on a different theme to help learners see the multidisciplinary nature of language learning. The themes explore all languages and cultures around the world rather than promoting one language in particular. This ensures that, regardless of a learner’s language profile or proficiency, there is something to inspire and motivate. Our resources support the ambition of the Curriculum for Wales for all learners to be ethical, informed citizens of Wales and the world. By using language as the vehicle to examine the world around us, our resources support learners aged 11-18 to develop the intercultural skills required to thrive in the 21st century.
We also support literacy skills and digital competency which are key cornerstones of the curriculum. Our resources aim to highlight the multilingual nature of our local and global communities by giving learners the freedom to explore independently and develop a lifelong love of language learning.
