The award winning Activate Mentoring Programme is now going into its sixth academic year.

Schools recognise the value of 1-1 mentoring and the support a business mentor can bring. Mentoring helps students grow their confidence, engage them in their future planning, develop their soft skills and increase their resilience. 

It helps those students that lack confidence or who are disengaged with education. 

Activate Mentoring:

  • Target groups - Years 9, 10 and 11
  • Target groups - students lacking motivation or confidence
  • 1-1 weekly support with an business mentor
  • Selection, training, vetting and support managed by EBP South
  • Mentors matched to the student 
  • We measure the outcomes and provide an impact report


  • Increased confidence and self-esteem
  • Increased likelihood of achieving potential
  • Increased engagement in future planning
  • Increased motivation and engagement
  • Increased resilience
