The Peer mentoring scheme
Mentoring is an opportunity to support and encourage students
aged 14-19 in a number of ways such as; adapt to college life,
complete course work, develop independent skills, Peer Reading
and develop self-confidence.Peer mentors work closely with
Student Services and receive full training before being matched
with their mentee. Peer mentors are requested to meet with their
mentee for a minimum of 10 hours throughout the year. The time of
mentoring session is agreed between the mentor and the mentee
themselves (during break and lunch times).
Mentors are requested to attend an additional training session three times a year.
If you are interested in volunteering in the
grounds working alongside our Professional gardening team to gain
more experience, Learn new skills or build confidence then our
unique gardens are the place for you. Volunteering can take
