The latest successful mentoring breakfast was held at Longfield Academy on Wednesday 13th September.
As the first academy within Leigh Academies Trust to offer students business mentoring, a scheme where volunteers from the local business community donate their time and expertise to meet with students once a term, Longfield is keen to maintain and grow their scheme.
Utilising the academy’s network of businesses who offer students work experience, programme lead, Mrs Williams, was pleased with the response and a useful morning ensued including testimony from a current mentor. Training for the academy’s newest mentors is scheduled for November 10th.
Longfield academy will be holding a further mentoring breakfast on Friday October 20th from 08:00 to 10:00. To attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
