QAC has a mentoring programme designed to support students with additional social and emotional needs which may impact on their learning.
Mentors work 1:1 or in small groups offering support with personal and social issues as well as delivering the mentoring curriculum, Jigsaw, which was developed by the Educational Psychologist. Jigsaw helps students to develop their self-identity, social awareness, emotional literacy, regulation of emotions and resilience in facing difficulties and challenges.
What the students say
QAC has helped me to be more independent. I have made so many friends here and receive lots of support from staff but most importantly, we all have lots of fun!
