Oxford Brookes University LogoOxford Brookes University Mentoring

We have a number of mentoring schemes which help Oxford’s young people achieve their potential at school and beyond.

Mentoring for year 12 & 13 pupils with Autistic Spectrum Condition

We offer mentoring support to pupils studying for A Levels or BTECs with Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC).

Brookes’ students provide one-to-one mentoring to pupils with ASC with the aim of helping them make the transition from school / college to university.

If you are interested in mentoring happening at your school, or becoming a mentor, please feel free to contact the team for further discussions.
