TA21 Mentorship Programme
We are currently introducing the TA21 programme to our second year students. Part of this programme involves establishing a mentoring programme between Drimnagh Castle alumni and our current second year students.Recent academic research indicates a direct correlation between access to mentoring and an increase in college applications for mentees. We feel that offering a similar opportunity to our students would help to generate more interest in third level education. Considering these benefits, we are currently recruiting mentors to work with individual groups of second year students.
This will involve attending an hour long training seminar and three 40 minute mentoring sessions within the current academic year. We intend to hold the training session in the school on the 7th December at 6pm.
Your participation is greatly appreciated.
