Jump start

By Robyn Rosen, October 8, 2009

A new mentoring scheme matches pupils at Jewish schools with professionals offering career advice.

More than 60 students have applied to join the Jump programme, launched by education charity World Ort.

Piloted at JFS and Hasmonean, organisers hope all Jewish secondaries will eventually offer the scheme. Jump director Julia Alberga said: “By linking them with mentors, students will gain helpful insight that will assist them in making the right career decisions.”
