A huge well done to Sophie, Jack and Ellison who graduated today from Bury’s Barclays Lifeskills Mentoring Programme today. The programme has helped them develop the skills they need to take their next step, whether that’s going to sixth form, college, university or straight to work. They have been involved in a variety of activities working with external facilitators, employers, students from other schools and The Talent Foundry. They were amazing!
