Use your skills, knowledge and experience to mentor a young person in school.
Mentors work with a small group of students aged 11 – 15.
The programme is designed to:
- Raise their aspirations
- Provide them with life skills
- Improve their confidence
- Inspire success
Aspirations play an important role in educational and professional achievement for all young people. Mentoring programmes can significantly raise aspirations and close the aspiration-attainment gap.
Mentoring boosts young people’s aspirations, confidence, self-belief and motivation.
Mentoring enhances ‘soft skills’ including: • communication and language • social interaction • a more positive optimistic outlook
These abilities are increasingly important for success at school and in the increasingly competitive job market.
