STEAM Mentoring Programme

We are delighted to be partnering with SoapBox Youth Project and Local Village Network (LVN) for a second year, to deliver their STEAM Mentoring programme with Year 5. 

Soapbox 1

STEAM Mentoring is an innovative and original programme, funded by the GLA, which inspires and encourages young people to aim for careers in the STEAM industry, such as engineering, medicine, graphic design and technology. We do this by bringing in volunteers who work in a range of STEAM careers to run a series of 6 interactive and fun one-hour sessions, alongside an experienced LVN colleague.

Year 5 teacher Finonnuala Gormley told us that she has enjoyed seeing the children ‘being so interested in the speakers and seeing them realise that they can follow their dreams.’ The whole class certainly seem to be enjoying the sessions too… here’s what some children had to say:

‘I enjoyed learning about all the different types of doctors that there are, and it has inspired me to be a doctor…’

‘In the session we talked about technology involved in VR and as a result, I want to be a programmer when I grow up.’

‘They taught us that we can do our dream job and how we are able to accomplish it.’

In addition to this, we work with the following local organisations to deliver all sorts of fun and learning for the children.

  • Greggs
  • Islington Big Alliance
  • Kingsley Napley
  • Air BNB
  • Business2Schools
  • Reach Out
  • City University
  • London Youth
  • Islington Council – Bright Start
  • Parishes (SSPP, St Josephs, St Peter Italian)
