At Make it Mentoring, we are proud of our connected, passionate and experienced team and we work together holistically towards our mission. With colleagues based within our two hubs, at our Post 16+ House or out in the community such as in schools, colleges or out and about, we still manage to connect and work together to achieve a best practice for our mentees and create a team culture.
As a mentor with Make it Mentoring, you are supported by this teamwork and are able to access reflective practice every fortnight. There are opportunities to work with other mentors and link together mentees to enable and encourage socialisation. This can include everything from games nights to trips to the theatre. A mentor is also supported through line management and offered supervision regularly.
