Leigh Academy Mentoring Launch

Leighmentoring-1The Leigh Academy was delighted to launch it new Business Mentoring scheme on Tuesday 7th June by holding a business breakfast to inform local businesses on the many benefits of becoming a Business Mentor.

Guests enjoyed some relaxed networking as well as hearing personal testimony of current students on their journeys within the Academy. Our students gave positive presentations on the many qualities of being at The Leigh and guests were well looked after with guided tours of the Academy.

As part of Leigh Academies Trust, The Leigh Academy was supported by our other Academies who have existing mentoring schemes to explain how they work and what the benefits are to both students and their mentors. Feedback from delegates included “it was extremely beneficial to learn about the Mentor Scheme you have to offer and to network with other businesses” and “we found the morning informative; we were so impressed by the Leigh and especially the students.”

After this successful launch, we look forward to working with our new Business Mentors. For businesses interested in participating, please contact Sally Phelps on sally.phelps@leighacademy.org.uk for further information about the scheme.
