Mentoring Programme

Whilst using My Future Hub to learn all about careers and industries, young people will also be assigned a mentor who they will meet with virtually each month. All of our mentors are brilliant diverse junior employees of our Corporate Partners, working across a wide range of industries. They have all undergone rigorous safeguarding checks and completed mentoring training. 

In Year One, their mentor will build their confidence and guide their learning through My Future Hub. In Year Two, they can choose a new mentor in an industry they’d like to go into. Together they will work through our Career Ready Coaching Programme. Whilst using My Future Hub to learn all about careers and industries, young people will also be assigned a mentor who they will meet with virtually each month.

Year One

Mentee Self-Discovery, Self Profiling and Confidence Building: the focus of the first year of the mentoring is for mentors to build their mentees confidence and guide them through a self-reflective process – identifying their skills, talents, interests and areas for growth.

Commercial Training Programme Modules: Mentors will be able to view the modules their mentee has completed on My Future Hub and will discuss what they learned in each session.

Year Two

At the start of Year Two, mentees can request a new mentor who is in an industry they’d like to enter. Together, they will work through a structured “Career Ready Coaching” programme. Each month will involve a set activity for mentee and mentor to complete together, designed to help them prepare for higher education/further training and secure a fantastic first role.

Activities in the Career Ready Coaching Programme include:

  • Higher/further education application support
  • Creating a CV
  • Writing a strong personal/supporting statement
  • Creating a LinkedIn Page and Using LinkedIn
  • Building a Personal Narrative
  • Interview Practice
  • How to find internships whilst at university
  • Soft skills development – communication, time-management, professionalism
  • Exploring apprenticeships
