Our Mentoring and Enrichment Programme

In this programme, Year 9 pupils are recruited and supported in their academic and personal development throughout the next four years of their education with:

  • A corporate mentor;
  • Two residential summer schools (one at Cambridge University the summer before Year 10 and in London the summer before Year 12);
  • Workshops–geared towards academic, personal, and professional development;
  • Career days;
  • Cultural visits to London museums and other arts and science activities; and
  • Opportunities for paid work experience at partner firms.


This highly intensive programme involves a yearly minimum of 10 workshops by ACD and 20 mentoring sessions, on average, with corporate mentors.

Students are equipped with the information and tools they need to:

  • Make choices in relation to GCSE and A-level subjects;
  • Understand the examination results required to gain entry to universities;
  • Understand how university choices can improve their career opportunities;
  • Positively develop and promote themselves;
  • Primarily enhance and improve their career potential within commercial organisations.


Our programme is delivered with the support of staff from our corporate partners and other experienced business professionals.
