REGULAR ONE TO ONE ACADEMIC SUPPORT, PEER MENTORING AND CO-LEARNING ACTIVITIES HELP YOUNG PEOPLE TO ACHIEVE POTENTIAL
Upgrade Yourself is an innovative programme of educational support which uses regular one-to-one academic support, peer-mentoring, and co-learning activities to help young people acquire learning in ways that are meaningful and effective for them. The programme is extremely effective and participation significantly increases academic performance and aspirations, enabling our young people to progress into Higher Education including attending elite universities such as Oxford and Kings College.
The core activity is our weekly one-to-one academic mentoring programme. Staff and volunteer peer-mentors tutor participants in specialist subject areas, with an average improvement of at least two grades for regular attendees. (Thank you to the committed volunteers who make this possible!)
Upgrade Yourself also includes educational outreach to schools, local communities and an informal education programme that complements academic commitments, to develop transferrable skills. The aim is to increase social and cultural capital, through exploring effective communication, time management, educational structures, personal development, well-being and careers’ orientated delivery.
SE1 United’s educational intervention programme is adaptable to the needs of any particular group and is a mobile series of workshops that can be taken into educational establishments and youth organisations.
