I am pleased to say that last week we launched our Mentoring Prospectus (attached) setting out details on how to join our mentoring community or apply to our mentoring fund. Our goal is to connect a new generation of mentors to pre-GCSE teens at the risk of disengaging and underperforming their potential.
We believe in an evidence based approach to our work and have launched two pieces of research that underpins our mentoring strategy: Effective Employer Mentoring which reviews the positive impact that mentoring can have and Mapping Disengagement which explores the levels of disengagement from education across the country. Please find all the information about our campaign here: https://www.careersandenterprise.co.uk/mentoring.
We really appreciate your ongoing help and support and would be very grateful if you could share information about the campaign with your wider networks. Please use the following information for your social media channels using the @CareerEnt twitter handle and #MentoringFund to help us build momentum around the campaign. Attached is a more comprehensive social media toolkit, if needed. The deadline for applications for funding is 19 August, please share with organisations that you think might want to apply.
Research shows that employer mentoring can have a transformative effect on young people by helping them imagine their futures in a positive way. Our aim is to strengthen and support mentoring and employer organisations that are committed to unlocking this inspiration. Working together, we hope to create a step change in mentoring provision and empower thousands of young people to take control of their future.
Please get in touch if you have any questions. We welcome your feedback and insights.
Thank you again for your continued support.
