Supporting young people locally

Working with NHS Employers, the Departments of Health and Work and Pensions, Jobcentre plus and local youth organisations such as social enterprise Brightside, staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’ are helping to pilot two new e-mentoring programmes aimed at young people.

Both programmes – one aimed at young people aged 14 to17 years and who are in education, the other aimed at young people aged 16 to 24 who are not in education, training or employment – aim to increase awareness of the wide range of clinical and non clinicial careers available in the NHS and to give young people the self-confidence and motivation they need to succeed in the workplace.

Almost 300 Trust staff expressed an interest in becoming a mentor, far exceeding the number needed, so we will also be developing a Trust e-mentoring programme that we hope to launch next year.  

Dr Beth Thomas, who leads the project says, “We are delighted that so many staff have come forward.  Through them we will be able to support and inspire young people and we also hope that staff will gain personally from the experience of becoming a mentor, ultimately improving their own skills and benefiting our patients.”
