Mentoring and guidance for local students

The Role Models project involves Sussex students providing mentoring and guidance to pupils at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy through workshops and one‑to‑one sessions.

Our students design the workshops with tutors from our School of Education and Social Work.

The programme covers issues including sex and relationships, body image and mental health.

The sessions are designed to contribute to the pupils’ personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) curriculum. This means they can explore sensitive topics in a relaxed and informal way and get to know Sussex students.

Email community@sussex.ac.uk if you’d like to learn more about the Role Models project, or have an idea for other ways we could be helping young people in the area.
