The Hundred of Hoo Academy was delighted to hold its first Business Mentor Training on Friday 24th January. Having had a superb response to a request for suitably interested volunteers, the group met to learn more about how the scheme will work and completed safeguarding and DBS checks.
Our volunteers, many of whom have an existing link to the school as alumni or indeed parents, discussed the many aspects of how a mentor can help to guide and inspire young people. Mentors will meet on a regular basis with either one or two year 12 students from now up until Easter of 2021.
We very much look forward to the progress of this first Business Mentoring Scheme at the academy.
