Mentoring

Mentoring in Secondary Schools

The RISE Trust runs the ‘Mentoring’ programme in Chippenham secondary schools which provides valuable one-to-one adult interaction with a trained member of staff.  This service is provided through a Service Level Agreement with The RISE Trust and takes place at the secondary school.

  • A mentor is seen as a ‘neutral’ and the child can talk without being judged.
  • Mentoring is about building a relationship of trust and respect, and then journeying with the young person.
  • A mentoring session may be chatting, playing a game or doing an arts and craft activity but often the student wants to talk about their feelings and problems.
  • We give a listening ear to the young person.
  • Our trained mentors are not counsellors, and cannot make decisions for the students.
  • The mentoring sessions take place in school for typically 30 – 40 minutes once or twice a month.
