Our TFTF Mentor will be working with groups of students at the school on a weekly basis, delivering fun and interactive sessions that equip students with the mindset and social and emotional skills to succeed at school. The sessions are all based on real life scenarios and examples, and the Mentor will be giving students important life skills which they can apply both in and out of school. Our Mentors are positive role models who use their own experiences to build strong relationships with students and work with them to get the most out of education.

About TFTF

About Think for the Future 

We have been operating since 2012, delivering our Behaviour and Resilience Mentoring Programme in secondary schools across the Midlands and beyond. We work with national organisations to ensure our services are of the highest quality and deliver effective outcomes, adding significant value to every school and organisation we work with and enabling them to achieve targeted outcomes. Our mentors work with students to increase school engagement and equip students with the resilience and mindset to succeed at school. 

Mentoring Programme

We will be running our mentoring programme within your child’s school and would love the opportunity for your child to be involved with the work we are doing. 

In short, our mentors will be running group-based sessions weekly (typically for a full academic year). Our mentors are positive role models, who are passionate about working with young people. The mentors deliver our curriculum based on the topics outlined below; ranging from tackling challenging behaviour to raising aspirations and careers. We tailor the sessions to the needs of your child, providing tools and techniques to build social and emotional resilience to help the pupils to achieve their full potential at school.
