that build skills and knowledge to help support learners with progression to Higher Education; navigating the options available and supporting the application
process. They must also have ability to deliver mentoring programmes in those schools directly to learners.

progression through a variety of training interventions including, for example, group training, one-to-one training and off-site sessions at other educational
institutions. In those institutions, at least 15 learners must also receive support directly from the organisation to support progression to Higher Education through
mentoring by providing, for example, 1-to-1 mentoring, student workshops, training and consultations. The activities for both staff and learners will primarily be
delivered on-site at the schools but further variety and context should be added through delivery of training sessions on site at one or more of DANCOP’s partner
