Event description

Description

How to effectively engage young males with education and provide routes into employment and socially responsible adulthood is a concern of many professions. A lack of, or poor academic attainment by some young males has been implicated in:

  • reduced occupational opportunities and social mobility across the lifespan,
  • poor health outcomes in later life,
  • a correlation with criminality.

Mentoring offers an evidence-based approach to improving school performance – and addressing concerns related to problematic behaviours. Taking action on improving educational performance and enabling boys and young men to achieve their potential is also about improving health outcomes across the lifespan.

The accreditation is a ‘Unit Award in Mentoring Boys and Young Men’ at Level 2 providing delegates with an understanding of mentoring work. The workshop considers:

  • the rationale for work with young males
  • a strengths-based approach to work with young males
  • the role of the mentor
  • qualities desirable in a mentor
  • primary tasks of a mentor
  • dealing with disclosure/safeguarding
  • setting boundaries in mentor-mentee relationships
  • building and sustaining mentor-mentee relationships
  • good practice sharing and a framework for schools

This workshop is a day in duration and is delivered in an informal style. It is a full-day exploring attitudes towards boys and young men alongside practical approaches and a blueprint/framework for how mentoring can be delivered effectively in your school.

The course is suitable for anyone with an interest in mentoring work that works in a school setting. Sixth formers are welcome to attend as well – they must be accompanied by a member of staff and would be most welcome. (In order to facilitate peer-mentoring, the sixth-formers would need to be male, however the mentoring accreditation is open to all members of staff, regardless of gender.)

Each participant undertaking the Award will be provided with their own copy of the Mengage coursebook: Mentoring Male: A guide to mentoring work with boys and young men. The 32-page coursebook provides a background to the issues covered by the workshop and a reference source practitioners can refer back to when delivering work.

The venue is Black Finch New Road, the home of Worcestershire County Cricket Club, in the centre of picturesque Worcester. Starting at 9 for registration, all refreshments and lunch are provided, finishing at 4pm.

Early bird booking of £250 + booking fee until July 31st

£280 + booking fee thereafter.

There is an option to be invoiced.
