Mentoring Practitioner (SAFS)
Responsibilities: To help young people in school to reach their full potential.
Previous experience: Managing restaurants and as a travel rep before working at the Longacre Community Hall, where I realised I wanted to work with young people. I trained as an HTLA and then worked at the Pupil Referral Unit in Bath, and when this closed moved to the Link School. I learnt to drive at the grand old age of 51! This then enabled me to take up the post of Reintegration Officer and now Student & Family Support Mentoring Practioner.
Likes Mentoring Plus because: It supports and focuses on the needs of young people .
Good at: Cooking and making people feel at ease.
Not so good at: Being tidy and organised, and parking!
