Secondary mentoring

Secondary mentoring is designed to encourage students during their final years at school.

Having a mentor develops the student's understanding of the world of work, the key skills required for further education and future employment opportunities.


Business mentors enjoy the satisfaction of helping young people reach their potential. While companies join the mentoring programme to help develop their employees' communication, leadership and team work skills.

Secondary mentoring gives young people a first hand insight into the qualities and attitudes required by employers, coupled with important skills such as communication, teamwork, numeracy, IT and problem solving

What happens?

Each company agrees to recruit 5-10 mentors. Volunteers agree to spend around two hours a month on mentoring, for one year.

Each mentor is supported by the student's school or college, and by Southwark EBA. All mentors are required to take part in a half-day training session that covers all the main aspects of being a mentor.

If, after this, applicants are sure they want to go ahead, a Disclosure and Barring Service checks is completed this is standard practice if adults will be working with young people.
