I've signed up for a scheme at work. Its a government backed scheme called Backing Young Britain - Mentoring. Mentoring wasn't something I am inspired to get into, but I'd not ruled it out, the skill sets are similar to coaching AND work are covering my time to do it. What have I got to loose?
So I got a free day out of the office, away from my desk and attending the day's training. I felt really inspired as a result. The scheme is to help 18-24 year-olds get work. Some of these young adults have little or no confidence, lost all motivation etc. etc. There are currently over 7,000 waiting to be matched to mentors. I can't wait to get started with mine.
An yes, before you ask, I do have some doubts. What if I get the one that's not interested, or is abusive or argumentative. - I'll just have to call it a challenge.
Took the bank to task again. They'd not properly sorted out the problem they'd caused. They've very kindly paid me another £50 in compensation. I'll add that to my course fund.
