Last chance to nominate students for AQA Unlocking Potential

Monday 26 Oct 2015

Teachers have until Friday 30 October to nominate two of their students for the life-changing AQA Unlocking Potential mentoring programme.

AQA Unlocking Potential is aimed at young people aged 14  to 19, who have overcome personal challenges. The programme is run jointly with the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.

Now in its fifth year, the programme is once again looking to develop the skills, confidence, motivation and self-belief of a new group of young people.

Ross, one of the students who took part in the 2014 programme, said: "It helps you to see who you are … it brings out your true colours."

Young people will be paired with inspiring mentors who have competed at world-class sporting events - including the Olympics and Paralympics - and have overcome their own significant personal challenges. The mentors will support the chosen students to deliver a community project over the course of eight months.
