FHS Business Mentoring

We believe that mentoring is key to ensuring our students reach their full potential. We are in a unique position to work closely with two local organisations. These mentoring sessions consist of regular meetings between the student and their personal mentor. Mentors are matched with students based on the mentors expertise and qualities. By appropriately matching students to mentors we endeavour to have powerful positive effects on the students’ personal and academic lives. Ultimately, mentoring enhances students to personal growth and development.

Stansted Airport Business Mentoring

Working in partnership with Stansted Airport, students in Year 11 have the opportunity to have a mentor to support them through their last year with us at Forest Hall School. The rationale behind this programme is to develop students’ skills in the following areas:

  • Time management
  • Communication
  • Organisation
  • Confidence
  • Problem solving
  • Team work

These mentoring sessions take place in the school library during registration time. At the end of the programme students are invited to the airport for a celebration.

Stansted Business Forum (SBF) Mentoring

Students have the opportunity to be mentored by local business owners from Stansted to help develop their understanding of a wide range of businesses. The rationale behind this programme is to develop students’ skills in the following areas:

  • Problem solving
  • Having difficult conversations
  • Team work
  • Problem solving
  • Employability skills

Mentoring will take place both on site and at the local businesses. This enables students to get a real flavour of the world of work.

"The aim of these programmes is to ensure that FHS students continue to achieve highly at school by giving them access to real life employers who can inspire them and motivate them to greater things. FHS staff are inspiring students to greater things inside the school but I believe it is also highly important that students have access to these real life mentors who can give them greater knowledge of the world of work and the world outside school. This will give our FHS students the ability to develop their employability skills and make them successful when they enter the world of work!"
