Nominations are now open for the AQA Unlocking Potential 2018/19 programme.

AQA Unlocking Potential is an eight month ‘transformational’ mentoring programme for young people aged from 11-19 years of age, run jointly with education charity AQA.

Young people will get the chance to work with and learn from the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust’s team of inspirational athlete mentors. AQA Unlocking Potential aims to raise young people’s aspirations and expectations on future life goals, whether from school to Further Education, Further Education to Higher Education, or into training and employment. Young people are to be nominated by their teachers who believe that they would benefit from mentoring support to develop life skills and increase their confidence, self-belief and motivation. 

Nominations for the 2018/19 programme are now open

For the 2018/19 programme there are two changes from previous years:

  • We are now accepting nominations for students from 11-19 years of age (previously 14-19)
