Abstract

The programme is school-based and aimed at young people who are ‘looked after’ by the local authority or have previously been looked after. The MCR Pathways Mentoring Programme involves four partners: the MCR Charitable Foundation; Glasgow City Council; the University of Strathclyde; and CELCIS (the Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland). The partnership was formed to realise a vision for looked after young people in Glasgow secondary schools, which is that they can achieve significantly more in education as a result of having the support of a volunteer adult mentor. The programme currently operates in six Glasgow secondary schools and there are plans to expand to include 10 schools and a total of 250 mentoring relationships in 2015.
