RTC North is proud to be running the Regional Mentoring Programme Funded by the Careers and Enterprise Company and in collaboration with the North East and Tees Valley LEPs. The programme’s aim is to provide insight, support and expertise to young people in the run up to their GCSEs, to support career aspirations and demonstrate more positive outcomes in school, work and life.
If you are currently a mentor and would like to access our suite of resources then please view our them here.
If you are considering becoming a mentor to help inspire and support young people in your area then please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Mentoring Programme is designed to create positive interactions between young people and industry ambassadors that empower and motivate both the business mentor and mentee.
Young people with mentors, especially those who are at risk of disengagement, raise their career aspirations, possess a more positive vision of themselves and their future, and demonstrate more positive outcomes in schools, work and life.
We know that mentoring programmes cannot replace teachers’ ability to improve school achievement however; research does tell us that aspirations play an important role in educational and professional achievement.
We are hugely passionate about creating opportunities to inspire young people from all backgrounds and abilities, offering those activities that motivate, inspire and bring learning and career opportunities to life.
