ASCENTS 121 science mentoring

The University of York is one of five universities linking undergraduate STEM students with year 11 students for one-to-one mentoring in science.  The project aims to improve educational outcomes in science for year 11 students.  Undergraduates have the opportunity to work with young people, share their passion for science, and be paid at the same time!

For undergraduates, the programme involves 2 days of training, 23 one-hour mentoring sessions in a school, and a six hour revision session.

Mentors must have a minimum of a C grade at GCSE in English, Maths and Science and a minimum of one A-level in either Biology, Chemistry, Physics or Psychology at grade C or higher and currently be in your 1st or 2nd year of studying for a degree in a science related subject that confers a BSc degree or integrated Masters degree.  For further information about taking part, contact Leanne Mason,
