A business mentor will be assigned to your class! Ensure that your mentor is part of the learning from the beginning of the program.
Collaborate with your SEP teaching partner and create your SEP learning partnership between your classes.
Give yourselves plenty of time to plan and to create a consistent schedule for your students to “meet” on a weekly basis (e.g., selecting a time throughout the day to do a Google Meet or collaborate through a Padlet, Google Slides, etc.)
Provide your students with lots of opportunities to build relationships with one another!
Encourage the older students to take a leadership role by choosing a “SEP Buddy” that they can support throughout the venture.
Contact the charity and invite them to “connect” with your school / participate in a Google Meet.
Provide opportunities for self-assessment/reflection before, during and after the learning journey!
