Volunteer Employer Mentoring Programme

Volunteer Employer Mentoring Programme Brochure

Employer Mentoring Programme Letter

Students who receive 4+ meaningful interactions with employers during their secondary school career are 86% less likely to be NEET (not in education, employment or training).

As an Employer Mentor*, your input and regular contact will raise aspirations, boost motivation and increase their confidence and self-esteem. This will result in improved personal skills and academic success at GCSE. Ultimately, the young person will become more work ready, employable and less at risk of NEET with a clear vision of a future pathway.

  • A short induction / training session in mentoring and safeguarding will be provided. You do not need to have any prior experience of working with young people or mentoring / coaching.
  • You must have the desire to help a young person make the best fit choices for them by remaining unbiased
  • You must be in employment and willing to meet with a student on site (i.e. 30 minutes every few weeks within the school hours, 8:30am – 3pm.) There is some flexibility.
  • A certificate of accreditation for your employer will be awarded upon completion.

Therefore, working together we can make a huge impact on the future of Brockington College students. Get in touch… Email Amber Colquhoun (Project Lead) at careers@thomasestley.org.uk or call 01455 283263.
