This course has been designed to help you understand the aims of peer mentoring and the codes of conduct, organisational and legal requirements to be followed by a peer mentor. You will also acquire communication, planning and review skills necessary for peer mentoring. Peer mentoring aims to support individuals' goals in spheres such as health and wellbeing, managing money, dealing with bullying, or addressing offending behaviour. The course has been designed to be appropriate for peer mentoring which is to be delivered face to face, by phone or online, and in a supervised context, either as a paid role or as a volunteer.
Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. We hope to be able to deliver the course in a mixed format - blending online lessons with face-to-face teaching – as and when we feel that, on the basis of Government advice and our own risk assessments, it is safe to do so. The ratio of face-to-face teaching in our college buildings to online teaching will vary from course to course, so more specific information will be provided to you at enrolment.
