About Jakob Benjamin Reuschling

Incoming Penultimate Year Economics and Politics student at the University of Leeds, from near Stuttgart, Germany. My research project aims to create an effective mentoring approach that supports the development of self-esteem in shy children after their transition to secondary school.

I am part of a team of four scholars who are working together with Durham University to research what makes a successful Multi-Academy Trust serving disadvantaged communities. In particular, we are focusing on the Laidlaw Schools Trust, which comprises seven schools in the North of England that predominantly serve disadvantaged pupils. Overall, this is part of the effort to reduce the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their more affluent peers.

I would love to talk about international politics, history, football and your all-time favourite Netflix shows!
