This thesis systematically evaluated the availability and impact of peer mentoring schemes within UK Higher Education. Firstly, a new measure of wellbeing was constructed and validated in student samples. A UK wide survey of 94 Universities supported the notion of increasing popularity of formal peer mentoring schemes and demonstrated the ...

Peer Resources: A Comprehensive List of Mentor Programs
While the professional and popular literature is fairly consistent about a definition of mentoring, for the purposes of these program listings, we conclude that formal mentorship has the following characteristics: a deliberate, conscious, voluntary relationship: that may or may not have a specific time limit; that is sanctioned or supported by the corporation, organization, or association (by time, acknowledgement of supervisors or administrators, or is in alignment with the mission or vision of the organization); that occurs between an experienced, employed, or retired person (the mentor) and one or more other persons (the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Working cooperatively
Lambeth has just launched a major public consultation on our plans to become Britain's first cooperative council. The proposals are built on Labour's experience of running the council for the past four years and outline how we will protect frontline services and make them more responsive to local need. That means reshaping the relationship between citizens and public services in favour of ordinary people. Labour's proposals were trailed in the Guardian back in February, months before David Cameron launched his ‘Big Society' proposals. There are some superficial similarities, but there is a fundamental ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I can answer any questions to do with relationships, boys, crushes and teenage problems. I give good advice to people who are wanting it. I am a good listener and enjoy helping people and hearing about what they have to say. Even if they just want someone to talk to, I am willing to give up my time to be suportive. Experience In school I was part of a Peer Mentor scheme. The idea of the program was for year 10 students to team up with younger children and help them through hard times and just be thier friend when they need to talk to someone. I have a lot of friends who are mainly all boys and I have got to know how thier minds ...
