Our Peer-to-Peer Programme gives two of your year groups the chance to benefit from the 1-1 environment of coaching. Much like our Secondary Programme, coaches meet with their coachee once a week in school to deliver 1-1 coaching sessions. The difference is that this time, we train year 12 pupils as the academic coaches, pairing them up with a younger pupil in years 8-10. Both coach and coachee will be at different, but pivotal moments of their educational journey - our programme encourages the kind of support to help both become independent and resilient learners.
COACHED BY PEERS
Training Year 12s as academic coaches ensures younger pupils receive quality academic support from a relatable role model. Year 12s develop listening, communication and leadership skills to aid them on the path to higher education, whilst working towards a Student Leadership Accreditation.
Younger pupils set their programme goal with their coach and it is down to them to decide together on the best use of their time. Through tailored coaching in the shared common environment of their school, our hope is that both coach and coachee will learn and develop from each other throughout the 7 weeks.
KNOWLEDGE OF UNIVERSITY
We run Launch and Graduation Trips where all pupils will have the chance to explore university campuses together, where activities will be led by Year 12s in order to give a sense of what being an independent student is really like. Upon graduating, Year 12s become CoachBright Ambassadors, supporting their future development.
