Everyone needs a mentor at some point, but for students aged 14 - 16, the support of an independent listening ear 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.
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.
