Bourne Ambassador Programme

In the 6th Form, students benefit from the Bourne Ambassador programme for the duration of their studies.  This is an exciting and innovative scheme where students are matched with a mentor from our wide database of over 50 mentors from a variety of industries.  Bourne Ambassadors are enthusiastic and inspiring individuals who welcome students to visit them in their workplace four or five times a year.  Their role is to provide support and advice to their mentees on their future choices and give them a real insight into the business and working world.  This in turn develops student confidence, networking skills, motivation and makes valuable business links that will benefit them in the future.

We are looking to engage local and national employers creatively to ensure our students understand the needs of employers and the current labour market. If you would like further information on The Bourne Ambassador scheme, please read our leaflet 'Inspiring The Next Generation' or email Vicky.woodings@thebourneacademy.com

Various companies have signed up to this unique and innovative mentoring scheme.  Our Bourne Ambassadors will provide vital life skills, confidence and self-belief they need to achieve in today's competitive business environment.

Every year, as a thankyou to our Bourne Ambassadors, we provide a Breakfast Meeting which has proved to be very successful.  Ambassadors met with Principal Mr Avoth, Business Director Mrs Gobell, Deputy Vice Principal Mr St John, Head of Careers, Employability & Enterprise Mrs Woodings and their students.  The wonderful breakfast was provided by local company Crab Apple Catering.
