Peer Mentoring Programme Training

Our Peer Mentoring training is based on young people supporting one another. Through the training, staff will match mentors with mentees in one-on-one friendships so that they can provide guidance and support, serving as positive role models. Our programme enables Peer Mentors to listen and support fellow pupils (mentees); helping them deal with the current challenges they may be struggling with.

We have produced 5 core modules that will support schools, colleges and community organisations in designing and implementing a sustainable Peer Mentoring Programme that works for their setting. The programme will be co-designed by young people to help and assist other young people.

Peer Mentoring Programme training for Education Staff

Duration: 2.5 hrs 

Our Peer Mentoring programme for staff provides training, resources and additional support to assist school staff with implementing a sustainable programme based on the identified needs of their setting. The programme will enhance early intervention and prevention of low-level mental health, safeguarding and wellbeing issues amongst young people.
