One to One Mentoring
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Access Training as a Company has been providing a mentoring service to unemployed individuals for the pasty 20 years.  The mentoring service we provide is designed to assist the individuals to overcome barriers such as: depressions, stress, anxiety, substance misuse, homelessness, debt, job searching, family issues, criminality, confidence and motivation amongst other issues.

Following a block of mentoring sessions we would expect individuals to have at least started to make progress in relation to whatever is affecting their ability.

Mentoring can be used as a quick fix to solve an issue such as: Writing a CV, running though interview techniques or assisting with the completion of a job application.  However, it is more commonly used to assist in dealing with barriers to employment.

How we make our service inclusive

As we are a peripatetic provision, when arranging a venue to meet we would ensure that the appropriate facilities would be available for that specific participant.

Staff SEND experience

All our staff have Level 3 Advice and guidance, and as we are also a signposting organisation, would ensure that each service the participant is directed to their staff also have the appropriate level of training and or qualifications.

How our service supports providers / schools / colleges

This programme would support schools and colleges with a 1:1 mentoring service for any of their learners who were finding it hard in their present environment., However with 1:1 support we would be able to work with them to overcome any barriers that they may be facing.

Support at key transition points

This service would support the above through key transition points by working with the participant on a 1:1 basis and assisting them overcome any problem,s that may occur, and signpost them to the most appropriate service provider/school/college, or any other appropriate provision that may be available to assist

Other local or national support

We have access to a network of over 50 specialist delivery organisations throughout Cornwall who are all there to supply support to families and individuals.  Nationally we have links with specialist delivery organisations and can assist with any benefit problems that may occur as we have excellent links with DWP. RNIB, RNC for the Blind, Disability Living Equipment Suppliers,  Access to Work (2), Specialist Employability Support for the Visually Impaired.  We are fully up to date with what would also be available nationally with regards to supporting families.

Resolving disagreements, mediation and making complaints

We would enact our Complaint/compliments procedure.
