Mentoring an individual with a speech impediment

Target audience - College
I managed to overcome a serious speech impediment to become a successful business person of seven years. I would welcome an opportunity to mentor / coach an individual who is experiencing difficulty in breaking down those initial barriers [e.g. conversation] that you face when entering the employment / education journey for the first time. I will provide at least 2 hours face-to-face meeting time per month with the right individual. Location will take place in a public place within the Dundee area - location will be agreed with the individual - no home visits will be permitted. The initial hour will be an opportunity for both of us to find out more about each other and decide if we would like to proceed to the next step.

StatWars: Data skills competition for pupils

Target audience - Primary School Pupil, Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old)
The StatWars vision is to provide a classroom project that delivers meaningful and engaging mathematics, numeracy and data literacy to pupils, by bringing the enchantment of the entertainment industry to their doorstep.

Pupils work in teams to analyse a large dataset of TV shows and films to produce an infographic poster, an advertisement poster and a 60-sec pitch. A celebration event, hosted at DataFest 2020 in March, will celebrate the achievements of pupils and give them opportunity to engage with industry judges to win a selection of prizes.

Teachers are provided with whole-class differentiated resources and online twilight sessions, alongside videos from industry professionals, to ensure a real-world, careers driven context is provided for pupils. Teachers can request visits, or internet calls from data professionals to help support the project in school and answer the many questions pupils will have!

StatWars allows pupils to make rich cross-curricular connections between mathematics, the world of work and their own learning, as they work through a topic that is meaningful, relevant and contemporary.
