A group of Year 9 and 10 Wellacre students have successfully completed Power2’s Teens and Toddlers programme, in partnership with Delamere primary school.

Teens and Toddlers launched in October, with students attending Delamere every Tuesday to work alongside nursery children. 

The aim of the programme is to help young people improve their wellbeing and school engagement and attainment.

Students become a mentor and role model to a child in a nursery, supporting their learning and development. They also take part in reflective group learning sessions which include specialised coaching to boost their self-confidence and raise aspirations.

Harry, Year 10, was invited to speak at the Graduation Event about his experience.  He said:

“The Teens and Toddlers programme has given me a chance and a new opportunity to try to better myself.  We went to the Delamere nursery, and I think I became a more mature person by doing this.  I built up a good relationship with my mentee and he opened up more and I saw a lot of improvements in him.  The best bit was seeing him smile when I was with him. I received a lot of praise from Delamere every week.  I think the Teens and Toddlers programme has been brilliant for me and brought out a side to my character.”

By completing the programme, all students achieve a national qualification in Interpersonal Skills (NCFE Level 1). The Teens and Toddlers tutors were pleased to present students with their certificates and invited them to the official graduation ceremony in March.

Nicola Carey, Teens and Toddlers Programme Lead, said:

“We will be sad to leave this group, they have been awesome!"

Mr Pemberton, Vice Principal, said:

“The tutors of the programme have been delighted with the students' participation and the quality of their work books and we were delighted to celebrate their achievements at the graduation event. The students involved have developed excellent relationships with their nursery child and have been wonderful role models to them.”
