Our ever-popular Mentoring Programme is now in its fifth year. Our Post 16 Mentors receive specific guidance and safeguarding training allow them to support their mentees with a whole range of varying issues. The role of the Mentor is to act as a guide and an advocate for their mentee in any issues they may have, meeting with them on a regular basis and where necessary, liaising with appropriate staff to communicate avenues of support. In recent years, we have seen students who benefitted as a mentee in their earlier years return to the scheme as a mentor in order to ‘give-back’ to the programme. Mentoring supports students with a wide range of issues, from transition to friendship, from attendance to organisation- everyone may benefit from a little extra support at times.
