Attendance Mentoring



This in-depth one-day training delves into how to mentor pupils with school attendance issues, enabling new and experienced mentors to develop the confidence, knowledge and skills needed to effectively address underlying issues and support students struggling with chronic absenteeism.

Exploring styles of school-based youth mentoring used to support students and engage caregivers. Trainees will reflect on why and how youth mentoring can successfully support and help to remove barriers to improving attendance at school.

Trainees will gain deeper understanding of the causes of absenteeism, best practices in mentoring disengaged students, and developing encouraging relationships that motivate improved attendance.


Very informative and intense training. I’ve learned so much and was able to put knowledge into practice during the course. Elaine Thomas is super professional, positive and inspiring. I recommend this training to anyone who works with young people.
