Eliv8 is a group mentoring programme for both KS2, KS3 and KS4 pupils. Its overarching aim is to raise young people’s aspirations, which in turn will support them in managing specific issues that they may be facing. It is an 8-week course which takes place once a week for one hour during a normal lesson period. The group will have a maximum of 8 students in it and the students will all be a part of the same year group.
Eliv8 is aimed at any child or young person that is struggling to engage within school, for whatever reason. This could be due to self-esteem, behaviour, bereavement, loss, challenging home backgrounds or anxieties due to the current pandemic situation.
We are currently running Eliv8 at Holy Trinity School and The Gatwick School. We have also created videos containing Eliv8 resources for schools to share with students.
