BAME Education Mentoring Programme
The BAME Education Mentoring Programme is delivered by the University of Brighton in collaboration with John Lynch Consultancy and Training.
It pairs BAME role models from the local community who wish to share their knowledge and experience with trainee teachers who identify as BAME, in order to counter the relatively low numbers of role models in schools.
As a mentor you will have the opportunity to provide a teaching student with ongoing support, and a regular boost in confidence and wellbeing to support achievement on their course and focus their career planning.
Knowledge of the education system is not required in order to participate. Mentors will receive training from John Lynch, a former Head Teacher and current Placement Tutor.
