Mentoring Projects

The Volunteering and Mentoring Team manage two mentoring projects:

School Mentoring

School Mentoring offers students the chance to get involved with local primary and secondary schools as a mentor.

Our mentors work one-to-one and with small groups to support pupils in overcoming barriers and reach their full potential, and is a fantastic opportunity for those who want to go into teaching, have a desire to work with young people, or simply gain experience in a professional environment.
