Sarah’s Testimonial –
“Throughout my own professional career I have benefited from people investing time and energy to mentor me. I know the positive impact that can have, especially if you don’t have people close to you who have trodden the same path as you. Becoming a mentor with the Step Further programme was extremely rewarding. Not just to help someone starting out in their career, but also as it helped me develop my own skills of listening, empathy, and approachability. I would fully recommend the experience. Step provided a high quality induction and ongoing support to mentors. I very much felt part of a transformative programme.”
Ali’s Testimonial –
“I thoroughly enjoyed being a mentor for the step further program. This is an excellent program to be a part of for both mentee and mentor alike. I learnt a lot about my coaching style and it was so rewarding to work personally with my mentee.Hearing about his wins and plans for the future was exceptionally rewarding and I am applying to be a mentor again for the next program. ”
