“Our students' attitude to learning scores have increased by 77% for those on Make the Grade mentoring.”
Neil Clephan, Headteacher, Roundhay School
For schools & colleges
How it works
Because every school is different, each Make the Grade partnership is different too. Activities are shaped entirely around the needs of each school and college, creating a bespoke approach in each case.
Make the Grade connects you with local employers to develop work-related activities for students.
Activities are planned and funded jointly by schools and a group of employers, according to local needs.
Make the Grade events take place in school or involve visits to businesses (or both!) and can be designed to support a variety of learning outcomes.
What sorts of activities do we do?
From guest speeches and workplace visits, to employability workshops and inter-school challenges.
Find out what real encounters we offer young people through Make the Grade.
