Have you considered accredited mentoring?
How to effectively engage young males with education and provide them with the support and encouragement they need to go on to bigger and better things is always a concern for staff.
Mentoring, as well as offering an evidence-based approach to work with young men, helps young men to achieve their academic and vocational potential, addresses concerns related to problematic behaviours – and provides go-to support and signposting to other services from someone they have built trust with.
The Unit Award in Mentoring Boys and Young Men is a Level 2 award providing your staff/students with an understanding of mentoring work. Whether it is for your staff to better engage with boys or for the boys themselves to support one another, mentoring is an approach that has been shown to work.
The workshop covering the award criteria is 4 hours long. Each staff/student undertaking the award will be provided with their own copy of the Mengage course book: Mentoring Male: A guide to mentoring work with boys and young men. A Level 2 certificate will be issued upon completion.
Feedback received – 23 staff in a Liverpool School said –
Rating delivery and knowledge of the trainer as a one (brilliant), collectively the group said, “The facilitator was engaging and informative. The case studies were informative and beneficial to our CPD. We would recommend the course to others as it was one of the best training courses that has been delivered to us.” Lord Derby Academy, Huyton
