I'm keen to hear more about the school's "Community Mentors" scheme. 

Last year I participated in the first data expedition, but with only meagre data skills I struggled to keep up with others. Obviously there was a wide range of levels of expertise but it was a bit disheartening and my impression is that some other participants felt the same. 

So I think there wold be great value in any community mentoring that can provide more support to those keen – but not necessarily very quick – to learn.

best regards
