Training is delivered by trainers from the Pioneers mentoring organisation. Students undertake a preliminary training course lasting for six sessions. The training is based on the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation Post 16 Mentoring Resources. Students are then matched to mentees and agreed mutually acceptable times for meetings. Peer tutors are encouraged to regularly review and reflect upon their practice and seek support and advice from the college mentors as needed.
The Peer Mentors are also given the opportunity to gain an Asdan Peer Mentoring Qualification by completing a portfolio of evidence and providing examples of planning, review and Key Skills development.
