Our Mentoring


“You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”
Clay P. Bedford


Mentoring and support is an important part of the BEAM programme, and the way we work.

We aim to inspire people to aspire; think big and build their confidence and skills so they succeed. That can be challenging, even scary at times. Having someone with experience to turn-to and building trust with that person through professional one-to-one support can make all the difference.

We provide mentoring services face-to-face, online or over the telephone and on a short or a long-term basis depending on the needs of participants. Face-to-face sessions can be in a workplace location, community facility, or at home.

This service can be booked by individuals or through an employer, community group, council or other organisation with the individual’s consent.

Long-term BEAM aims to develop a mentoring programme that will train former participants to become mentors in their own right – opening-up opportunities for volunteering and potentially employment.
