Mentoring Preference

We will do our upmost to accomodate either first or second choice preferences for all applicants however, occasionally this isn't possible and we will then provide another slot on a Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm.


Please tell us if there is anything you require to ensure you can play a full part in SHINE for example information in specific formats, particular physical access, flexibility around faith/religious days. SHINE will be in touch shortly via email to confirm your application has been received.

Commitment and regular attendance to the mentoring sessions are paramount to the success of the programmes. However, we understand that occasionally factors may occur which would affect your attendance, for example overseas attachments. We would appreciate it if you could inform us at this stage of any likely circumstances that may affect your ability to attend the school weekly.
