Pathways Coordinator at Goffs Academy

MCR Pathways is a transformational secondary school mentoring and talent development programme supporting Children Looked After (including those previously), and other vulnerable young people experiencing disadvantage (for example those with a social worker or on the periphery of the care-system) to realise their full potential through education. 

MCR was founded to reverse the education and life-chances outcome gap that exists between Children Looked After and their peers, and to achieve equality of educational outcomes, career opportunities and life chances for all young people. Focused on need, not label, and developed with and by young people over the past 14 years, MCR’s programme dramatically improves educational achievement, wellbeing and post-school destinations.

At its heart, MCR’s model is relationship-based mentoring that has evolved into an integrated programme supporting primary school transition and delivering weekly group work in Years 7 and 8. Young people from Year 9 upwards are carefully matched with a volunteer trained mentor, to meet one-to-one on a weekly basis.  Young people also have the opportunity to access an offer of employment, college and university experiences.

MCR young people tell their stories far better than us. Hear them in their own words in these short films of young people who have participated in the programme, reflecting on how mentoring has helped them create better futures for themselves:
