Everyone needs a mentor at some point, but for our students aged 14-16, the support of an independent listening each can be invaluable and transformative.
Our mentoring programmes are predominately 1:1 and face to face.
- allowing you to reach students for whom there is limited support or no other provision;
- improving student confidence and self-esteem;
- improving the learning environment, often for all, as mentored students become more motivated and focussed;
- providing links to local businesses and helping to meet Gatsby Benchmarks 3 & 5.
"Working with the team of mentors has been so beneficial to our students for many different reasons. They are able to focus on whatever they need help and support with so it is personalised for each student."
Quotes from students 2023:
"It was good to be able to talk about things that I couldn’t talk to family and friends about"
"My mentor introduced me to the “Habit tracker”. It increased my motivation, confidence, and well-being"
"We made a revision timetable which helped with my procrastination!"
Most of our programmes are sponsored by businesses who realise the benefit of facilitating these programmes within their companies. Mentoring helps them reach their CSR and social value targets as well as contributing to staff development. Mentors will often express pride that their employer sponsors such programmes.
