Mentoring works because everyone is different.
As a mentor you will give one – to – one support to a trainee at HOPE.
This will mean helping the trainee to succeed at the tasks set for them by the Garden Manager and in this way increase their self-confidence.
It could mean supporting them with day-to-day activities while they are at HOPE, such as making the tea and washing up.
You will be able to help them as they work towards their annual certificate.
You may be able to assist the trainee to develop employability skills.
