This guide, developed for The Big Bang Fair by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES), in association with WISE, focuses on how to engage with girls visiting the Fair. It looks at ways of ensuring young people get the most from their visit and helps ensure their enthusiasm lasts beyond the great day out we know they’ll have, and influences the choices they make in the future.
This manual will help you to find out more about what mentoring is, how it can help you, and how to get the most from your mentoring relationship. You can use this manual to refer to as you move through your mentoring relationship, as a useful reminder at each stage, and there are a number of useful forms that you can copy and use to record information and progress. In the first few weeks of your Apprenticeship, your new employer might offer you a mentor to help you settle in and to support you in getting the most from your learning. This mentoring relationship may last from a few months or to the end of your Apprenticeship.
