Mentoring

Mentors are key to The Beacon Scholarship. They are staff members of the Beacon School where a Beacon Scholar is enrolled, and are generally appointed by the Head of the School.

Mentoring

Mentors have important responsibilities for Beacon Scholars:

  1. They must meet with Beacon Scholars first to set targets, then at mid-term and finally at the end of term to assess performance against target;
  2. They must send completed Target Sheets to The Beacon Equity Trust on time; Target Sheets serve as donor reports for the charity and are an important aspect of monitoring the investment in Beacon Scholars and their education;
  3. They should be sufficiently trained to be able to offer tailored advice to Beacon Scholars on how to improve performance against targets;
  4. They should be able to act in a pastoral or consultative capacity to Beacon Scholars for any issues or problems they are encountering in any aspect of school life;
  5. They need to understand how to enhance leadership traits in children within a school environment.
