1. Mentoring: Your Opinions
Page 1 of 8
We know that having good emotional wellbeing is extremely important. Emotional wellbeing is when you feel happy, confident, are able to take part in school, college, or work, and other activities, and have good self-esteem. The results from this survey will help the Department for Education better understand what good mentoring programmes look like, what the key features are and how it works differently in different places. You know better than anyone about the pressures you and your friends face so we have launched survey to find out more about your knowledge and experiences. The survey should take 5 - 10 minutes to complete. This survey is for people aged 21 or under, or up to 25 and in full time education.
Thank you for your help.

1. Mentoring and support can be a variety of things - from helping a friend to discuss their problems, through buddying and befriending schemes, to 1:1 and group support sessions. It can happen face to face or be online. It’s about promoting emotional wellbeing as much as supporting those with problems. Mentoring is also sometimes called peer support.
A mentor could be a friend or other young people in your school or college, including those who may be older. For example, older young pupils in secondary school who provide support to Year 7 students as they come up from primary school.
