Mentoring young people aged 15–25 into education, employment and training
What is Aspire Mentoring?
Aspire Mentoring supports young people aged 15-25 throughout their journey of attaining, sustaining and thriving within education, employment and training. We do this through carefully matching a young person to a mentor who acts as a consistent role model, tailoring the support to each individuals’ unique needs and aspirations.
What does mentoring involve?
Our mentoring has a relational and holistic approach focusing on practical support, such as CV writing or interview skills, and social-emotional support, such as building confidence and self-esteem.
Traffic Light Journey
Our Traffic Light Journey ensures that young people are supported not only into, but also within education, employment and training.
Weekly mentoring for young people who are currently NEET.
Support is focused on overcoming the barriers, growing in confidence and gaining skills for education, employment or training.
Regular mentoring for young people recently EET.
Support is focused on maintaining the positive change, covering areas such as work-readiness skills, managing routine, decision-making and conflict resolution.
On demand mentoring for young people who have successfully sustained being EET.
This approach is to ensure that a young person receives support if at risk of becoming NEET again.
Where and When?
Aspire Mentoring sessions primarily take place in public locations such as cafes and libraries. However, mentoring also takes place at our centrally based mentoring hub for young people who may feel uncomfortable meeting in a public environment.
All mentoring sessions usually take place weekly, at a time and day that is convenient for both the young person and their mentor.
