Why is mentoring different to many other forms of personal development?
- Effective workplace mentoring provides unbiased, objective support that identifies the qualities, strengths and abilities in people and helps to develop them.
Over two days we’ll cover:
- What mentoring means to you and in your role at work.
- Listening skills and developing an asset-based approach.
- Supporting people to achieve their goals with restorative and non-judgemental mentoring skills.
- Developing resilience, self-belief and empowerment with mentoring skills.
- Practical steps and tools to start using your mentoring techniques right away.

Why buy your mentoring training from a social enterprise?
- Because you’re considering buying the training anyway! Buying it from us means you get to have a social impact too.
- As a social enterprise we’re unique in East Anglia as a training provider. We offer your business additional social impact when you buy the mentoring training from us.
- In addition, if after investing in mentoring training, you want to practise those skills with the young people we support, we’ll give you that opportunity to be a Volunteer Mentor.
- What better way to have a social impact than by supporting a young person in transition to independence?
Use this link to make your Mentoring Training application if you’ve already booked your course.
And we can offer you the opportunity to practise those skills and have even more social impact.
Why practise your mentoring skills and become a Volunteer Mentor?
- Because you’ve invested in the training and this is a socially responsible and impactful way of practising the skills in a way that makes a difference in your community!
Volunteer Mentoring will:
- Have a positive impact on your business’s staff recruitment and retention.
- Offer great Career Professional Development (CPD).
- Improve your business’s brand in the local community.
- Provide your staff with new skills including social skills, work-readiness skills as well as improve their motivation.
- Improve teamwork, leadership skills and enhance empathy in your organisation’s workplace.
- Create sustainable social action that changes lives and results in the prevention of street homelessness in our communities.
- Any mentor we’ve trained that would love to practise their new skills! We just ask them to be over 21!
- Anyone that is open to new experiences and able to reflect on their own experiences, offer empathy, guidance, practical ideas and support.
- Some of our mentors have been in care themselves, or previously been homeless.
What do Volunteer Mentors do?
- After the two-day training (including enhanced DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service – police check) and short interview), Volunteer Mentors are matched with a young person (mentee) and safe arrangements are made to meet.
- Volunteer Mentors and mentees each sign a Code of Conduct and we facilitate the match.
- After the training we ask our trained Volunteer Mentors to meet the young person for just an hour a week and have an informal chat over a coffee. And we’re at the end of the phone at all times.
- Volunteer Mentors offer someone to talk to about everyday things; from how to change a light bulb to longer-term plans, such as finding work. Some relationships may develop informally over a coffee and others can be a structured conversation around money skills and budgeting.
- Others may be more action-focused and involve researching where to find CV help or setting and sticking to a financial budget. Young people tell us that being ‘nudged’ by a Volunteer Mentor is helpful and empowering.
