PEER MENTOR TRAINING

Workshops for young people; peer to peer support

 

Our peer mentor training programme can be implemented in any organisation that works with young people. Being a peer mentor can develop essential skills which include listening, support and signposting. It can help build confidence and provide the opportunity to learn basic counselling skills and youth work skills.

 

  • The course includes four three hour sessions, two training facilitators, weekly appraisals and final assessment. Once the programme is complete we offer two follow up sessions with the group and the senior leadership teams to support the work in practice.

  • Minimum group size of four is required.

  • Fees start at £1500 for four sessions (plus reasonable travel expenses) which includes handbook and learning materials.
