Enter our 2016 Mentoring Programme!

Whether you’re just starting your school business or your business is already up and running– our mentoring scheme is for you!

The Mentoring Programme is a unique opportunity to learn from carefully selected business mentors who are experts in their fields and want to help you succeed in your enterprise!

What is mentoring?

Mentoring is an opportunity to receive one to one support and guidance from a professional working in the business world.

A mentor shares their ideas, knowledge, skills and experience to help your business grow! It is about more than giving advice, it’s about motivating and empowering you so you can reach your goals and set new ones!

A mentor is not someone you only contact when you face difficulties or have specific questions, but someone who can guide you and give you a fresh perspective even when you think things are going well.

Why join the programme?

It’s a unique opportunity to challenge yourself and reach your potential by receiving invaluable feedback from extremely knowledgeable mentors. Your mentor will be able to help you with your business plan and your final report! They will offer comments, feedback, and explain any confusing parts!

If you’re just starting out in your business, you will – like everyone else – run into unexpected problems or unforeseen circumstances. In those cases, your mentor is the person you can turn to for new ideas and support!

If you’re running a successful business, your mentor will help you expand your business, increase your income or customers – sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know.

Your mentoring relationship is as effective as you want it to be. You shouldn’t overwhelm your mentor – email them about 2 times per month, but make it count! They are more than happy to offer guidance – that’s why they signed up!
