Mentoring in Schools

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.

What does it involve?

A minimum commitment of 6 hours per student over 2 terms
