What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a process in which one experienced, knowledgeable and trained person supports the development of another person. In other words, mentoring is where one individual uses his/her experience, knowledge, training and skills to help another person to achieve set goals.

During the mentoring of a person to achieve an employment or education goal, the mentor helps the mentee to understand the employment and education systems in the UK; in relation to those two fields, supports the skills required for job searching, CV writing, application building, interview and presentation; raises awareness of cultural diversity, work place ethics such as confidentiality and boundaries, and keeps the service user motivated by boosting his/her confidence and self esteem.
