CAN has been working with the UEA on a Mentoring programme for Year 9 students; the aim of this programme is to give students a chance to talk to UEA student ambassadors about university, study skills and options for higher education. The programme is a combination of one to one sessions and e-mentoring.
After the 12 week programme was completed the students were invited to the UEA to experience some of the subjects on offer. After having a great time wandering around and experiencing the UEA the students were provided with a fantastic lunch. Then it was dodging the heaving rain for a treasure hunt around the grounds and time to dry out in the awards ceremony where students were presented with their certificates.
