Thursday 5th October saw the first training session for new business mentors at Strood Academy. Following on from a very successful breakfast launch delegates were taken through detail of the scheme which will focus on students in year 11. Hosted by Elizabeth Spry and Beth Roberts, within a lively session, new mentors took the opportunity to bond with each other.
New mentor, Daniel Goodwin of Pearson Whiffin Recruitment commented – “I just wanted to say thank you to Liz and Beth for our mentor training at Strood Academy. I also want to thank the amazing students who took us on a tour of the school and showed us why they are so proud to attend a great school. The training was informative, well thought out and relaxed enough to put everyone at ease and ensure that as a group or mentors we are ready and looking forward to working with the students in November. Thank you! “
