am working on a mentoring project at the moment and having fun doing it. As I have been researching it have been amazed at the different views and opinions expressed when asking a few basic questions, questions such as;
1) What is mentoring?
2) How do you engage with mentoring?
3) How do you measure the success of mentoring?
….and so forth and so on.
The range of answers are boggling but one thing is for certain, there are a couple of practitioners that I will meet before I get something concrete written down. One is engaged with a sports project….boxing….and the other has what I perceive as success with young people at risk of exclusion.
The next month should see some practical progress and hope that the results are worthwhile. This project has given me plenty of breathing space in what has been a hectic 2 weeks……it is a blessing in a time of uncertainty.
