The Mentoring Programme
52 Weeks MentoringYoung 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.
Time for Some Action 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. Click here to see our video.
Induction 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 they have been forced to be on the programme. During the Induction our skilled mentors will explain the programme, start to engage the young people and inspire them. By the end of the session the young people choose to be on the programme. The young person will develop a goal which will stretch their comfort zone for the next stage.
