You are here: Home Volunteers Training
Training is provided by our in house Trainer/Councillor who also has experience of working within schools.
The training incorporates written, visual and active participation by the volunteers. Subjects covered in the training include: Child Protection, Communication styles and Safeguarding. The training allows volunteers to appreciate the "real" situations they will be placed in.
Overall the Mentor is trained to develop listening skills which are the bedrock of Mentoring; the Mentee is not a passive recipient of a lesson or lecture. Rather the Mentee is encouraged to actively discuss any issues they feel are affecting them.
