Inspirational Adults is a mentoring programme that connects our students with the world of work in a meaningful way that can transform the career opportunities and life chances of young people.
The Academy works in partnership with the Education and Business Partnership and local employers to deliver a programme of employability related activities including:
- One-to-one mentoring with a business partner for Year 12 students
- Work based visits
- Research projects
- Targeted careers talks
We are delighted to have the support of local employers including Lincolnshire Co-operative, Lindum Group, Barclays Bank, Selenity, Ample Financial Services, Lagat Training, Duncan & Toplis and Streets Chartered Accountants.
The mentoring programme is an integral part of our Sixth Form programme of study and is designed to build confidence, resilience and work-based skills, giving real meaning to the work within the Sixth Form.
September 2016 to July 2017 was a pilot year for this programme and all of our Year 12 students benefitted from internal and external mentoring with an Inspirational Adult.
