Mentoring is… ‘Help provided by one person to another in making significant transitions’ (The European Mentoring Centre).
West Lothian Council believes that mentoring could be a powerful tool for lifelong learning, inclusion, and citizenship for many of its inhabitants. Mentoring can be a benefit to all who need it and we will initially concentrate on 4-18 year olds.
The aim of mentoring in our schools is to:
- Develop inclusion and wellbeing within transition periods
- Raise attainment and achievement
- Develop aspirations
- Raise ambition
Further information on Pupils Mentoring can be found in the policy under 'Online Tools' on the right.
