Role Models Resource Books

The Role Models peer-led mentoring project works with students from universities and colleges in Sussex. The student Role Models create interactive workbooks and films based on what they wish they’d known when they were younger for learners in secondary schools and colleges to use. In 2021, the team has created workbooks for students aged 14-plus, films and teacher resources on the topics of Climate Emergency and Worry, and resources on four other themes will be available later in the year. In March 2020, the team developed three activity books to be used at home: Wellbeing and Covid-19, covering emotional wellbeing, resilience-building and creative craft ideas; Gender and Sexuality, offering activities on language, history and definitions around LGTBQ; and Futures to help young people explore their future aspirations and goals.
