A pupil from Bishop Vaughan School has a won a national award run by a mentoring organisation.
Kaitlyn was nominated for a Brightside Mentoring Award after she participated in an online mentoring scheme. The mentoring scheme is run by the Mullany Fund, a charity that works to widen participation in healthcare and life science careers. Kaitlyn, who wants to be come a vet, was paired online with a mentor working in the life sciences. Over 10 weeks, the Kaitlyn received advice and support from her mentor on a range of issues linked to her career ambitions. Kaitlyn’s enthusiasm and commitment led to her mentor nominating her for the Brightside Awards.
Kaitlyn was nominated in the Under 16 Mentee of the Year category and faced competition from other young people from across the UK. Kaitlyn attended the awards evening in London earlier this week, where she won her category. Kaitlyn’s teachers and peers are delighted at her achievement, which recognise the exceptional effort she puts into all aspects of her studies.
The school would also like to thank the Mullany Fund for supporting our pupils and providing them with valuable opportunities such as the e-mentoring scheme.
