Who we are and how we got here
When Impetus Coaching’s founder – Melissa Mehta – started her coach training, she recognised that much of what she was learning would have benefited her as a teenager. Melissa approached her old school and offered to run sessions on confidence and communication for sixth formers. The head suggested instead that she create a workshop to support the school’s Oxbridge interview candidates.
Since that Oxbridge Interview Success workshop was delivered in 2009, Impetus Coaching has worked with hundreds of students from more than 30 UK schools. One of our first clients has seen an Oxbridge offer rate increase from 13% of pupils interviewed to 52% (from a cohort of 30) in this time. Amongst our clients have been non-native English speakers from China, Sri Lanka, Russia and Europe, as well as IB and EB students.
Alongside our interview success workshops for schools, we provide online resources and one-to-one coaching packages for individuals applying to Oxbridge and other top universities.
