MENTORING IN SCHOOLS
Through our Mentoring Programme in schools where young people have been identified as at risk of becoming NEET, we aim to partner with the schools to keep the young people engaged in education through one to one support sessions and group work.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
This is an opportunity for the young person to meet their mentor and start to build a relationship. At the start the young person may feel like reluctant to engage with the programme. During the Induction our skilled mentors will explain the programme, start to build a rapport with the young people and inspire them. By the end of the session the young people will be more open to joining the programme. The young person will develop a goal which will stretch their comfort zone for the next stage.
This is an intensive 3 day course with up to 10 young people. The course is designed to be challenging, engaging and fun. Each young person will spend the 3 days achieving their goal set in the Induction.
The course consists of team building activities, optional outdoor activity and active reviews. The group work allows the mentor to observe the barriers to learning that the young people may have in the classroom.
52 Weeks Mentoring
Young people will receive fortnightly intensive 1:1 mentoring for 1 year whilst in mainstream education. Each person will receive a continuous source of guidance and support throughout their time on the programme. In addition to mentoring we offer other support for young people which may include group work such as Drug Awareness, Gang Prevention, Healthy Living, Careers Advice and Personal Development.
