Our business mentoring programme helps connect our students with experienced professionals who can help guide and direct them through the most important steps of their early careers. Whether they are planning on a University or Apprenticeship route, the advice and guidance that you are able to offer will make a huge difference. It will help them to break down any barriers that stand in their way and get them off to a flying start in their future.
All our mentors receive mentorship and safeguarding training and sessions will follow a structured programme of content and topics to help frame conversations that make the biggest impact.
