International Peer Mentoring Course

There are many benefits to helping children and young people mentoring their peers for both the mentors and the mentees, including:

  • being mentored by someone of a similar age who understands what you are going through;
  • talking to someone independent from the situation;
  • developing confidence and communication skills;
  • developing listening skills;
  • develops problem solving skills;
  • encourages reflection;
  • teaches skills for the workplace.
 

The Mentoring School offer a half-day course to organisations, schools, colleges, universities and settings to train them to deliver the 7 module Peer Mentoring Course.   There are variants of the course for primary and secondary schools, and for young adults.

The half-day course covers the modules and administration of the course:

  • Module 1 – Your setting
  • Module 2 – About you
  • Module 3 – Managing emotions
  • Module 4 – Listening
  • Module 5 – Structured conversations
  • Module 6 – Organising the team
  • Module 7 – Bringing it together
  • Marking students workbooks

Young people attending the course will need to complete a section of the course workbook after each module and return this to the organisation delivering the course for marking and award of the certificate.

Places cost just £175 + VAT p.p. and include the first 10 student handbooks. Additional student workboooks are priced at just £3 each.

Our next course is on 17th July from 1pm-4pm at our Southampton offices.
