Peer mentoring training offers schools and organisations a best practice approach to addressing low level mental health and wellbeing issues, such as bullying, anxiety and friendship conflict that can impact on children and young people in their care.
Young people will be trained to be effective peer mentors with an emphasis on roles and responsibilities, boundaries and communication techniques enabling them to successfully support their peers of a similar age or younger.
On completion of this course participants will have:
- learnt what a peer mentoring programme is and its benefits
- considered the issues that mentees may need support with
- reflected on their role and responsibilities as a peer mentor
- gained communication and active listening skills
- looked at boundaries, confidentiality and what to do when they need to share information about their mentees
- a practical understanding of the role of the peer mentoring programme lead in supporting their peer mentoring.
