It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about Steps Ahead so I wanted to give a bit of an update on my progress as SA Ambassador.
I’m taking my role really seriously and want all young people to have the opportunity to experience this programme.
Recently the CIPD released a Steps Ahead Video describing how the programme works as well as the relationship between mentor and mentee. The video is live on You Tube so do check it out in the link above.
Last week whilst I was on annual leave (work never stops for me and I wouldn’t have it any other way!) I visited the Job Centre Plus at Daventry, Northamptonshire to promote Steps Ahead. The team there were very welcoming and were pleased that we could bring the programme to their local community. The team also asked if I was able to host a workshop with the young people to encourage more onto the scheme as at the moment we have more mentors than mentees!
As a result of my involvement with Steps Ahead, I will be a guest speaker at the SA Mentoring summit in London on 7th June which is really exciting and I’m looking forward to speaking with other mentors to find out what experiences they have had with the programme.
There are a lot more things going on with the CIPD over the coming months so I am really looking forward to sharing it with you as soon as I am able to.
I hope you’re all having a fantastic week and as always feel free to share (sharing is caring!) and if you would like me to blog about any particular topics or ask me a question please add a comment and I will happily respond.
