Our business partners provide work-based mentors to help, guide and support the young person during their apprenticeship or placement. This allows the young people starting out in their careers to tap into the wealth of expertise of their work-based mentor, ensuring that knowledge and experience flows down from those that have it, to those that need it. We provide training for the work-based mentors so they are able to understand the challenges, complexities and often the stigma facing young looked after people and to be effective in providing the support and help they need. This is part of the wrap-around package available for each young person participating in our World of Work programme. It provides a clear and flexible framework within which both the businesses and young people can work, confident that there is additional support and advice available if needed.
