Progressive Mentoring

what you need, when you need it

Introducing an Innovate Mentor who can show a positive adult role model can have a substantial impact on the life of the Mentee, increasing confidence, self-esteem, social and life skills, helping them to recognise the importance of establishing a secure future by engaging in or the completion of education, training or employment. And that other services are not to be feared and can support them to move forward and achieve their goals as well with successful engagement.

Service Description

Progressive Mentoring is a term we coined to describe in the best way we could the work that our mentors do with children and young people.

Progressive mentoring is about moving forward each time we engage with a child or young person. It’s about helping someone take that first stumble, then step, that turns into a walk and produces and run. With over six thousand successfully engaged sessions by 2016, our style of Progressive Mentoring is still going strong. Could it be the new bespoke way of thinking about a problem you have been looking for?

Innovate Progressive Mentors promote a common sense approach to any problem, entwined with our specialist skills in engagement; we aim to promote respect and improve behaviour by problem-solving alongside the young person, our sessions involve informal learning opportunities that help young people grow and develop aspirations for achieving targeted outcomes.
