What is Mentoring
Learning Mentors work with groups of pupils and individuals, teachers and managers, parents, carers and families, schools and other agencies, helping to construct a support network. Within the framework they develop trusting relationships in which information can be shared.
A wide variety of pupils are supported by Learning Mentors, often with behaviour or persistent absences. The pupils may be demotivated or lacking self-esteem, have fallen behind with their work or find communication difficult.
Whatever issues individual pupils face, Learning Mentors can help develop respect not just for themselves but also for those around them.
There are many after school clubs that pupils are able to participate in. These are run by the Learning Mentors and include both educational and sports related activities.
As Learning Mentors we are aware that getting target children out from class to spend quality time to reflect on their learning or behaviour, problems or any issues that they may have, actually helps them recognise self-awareness and gain skills to use in class. Therefore it will prepare them for the curriculum.
