Are you about to start sixth form or college?
With exam results released this month many of you will now be looking to the future and the next steps in your education journey.
The transition from a well-trodden school campus to sixthform or college can be daunting, learning to navigate a new setting, meeting new people and advocating for your needs with new teachers can feel like a roadblock to your education.
Join us on Thursday 1st September for our Mentor Social Media Takeover.
Three of our expert Mentors who have all negotiated the transition from School to sixthform/college and beyond will be taking over our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook accounts, sharing their experiences and top tips for managing the transition into further education.
At 7 pm we’ll be hosting a live Q&A session with LOOK mentors and education professionals answering your questions on transitioning to sixth form/college, sharing practical advice, support services and lived experiences to help make your school transition as smooth as possible.

Meet the Mentors
Hi, my name is Aliza, I’m 18 and have been living with sight loss since I was born.
I was due to sit my GCSEs at the beginning of the first lockdown when it was announced that schools would predict grades based on mock examinations and other work completed in class.
Thankfully I did well in all of my GCSE results, and I have recently completed my studies at sixthform where I did a BETEC in Health and Social Care and Art.
Hi I’m Al Ameen I’m 26 years old and I’m currently studying for my Postgraduate certificate in Mental Health and Clinical Psychology at London South Bank University.
Some of my hobbies include listening to and playing music, going to the gym, reading and going out with my friends.
I have been involved as a mentor with LOOK since 2016 and have loved getting to know my mentees and challenging myself to be the best!
My name is Emilia, I have an undergraduate in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies and a master’s in Criminal Psychology.
I work part-time for the cabinet office and I’m currently doing my qualifications to become a solicitor.
I have had a visual impairment from birth, I am partially sighted, but I have not let my sight stop me from achieving.
