The Mentoring core practice involves various types of mentoring programmes, designed to foster academic and personal growth among all students. It includes, for example, college-focused mentoring, peer-to-peer mentoring, and career-focused mentoring. Mentoring provides all students with a supportive relationship with a more experienced individual who can serve as a role model-such as teachers, community leaders, peers, adults and/or college students. Mentoring is not a once-off activity; it involves a mentor engaging with a mentee/small group of mentees over a length of time.

In Firhouse community college we are embedding mentoring in the school as a whole, with the intentional aim that over the next few years that each and every year group will be involved in mentoring, either as a mentor to others, or as mentees.

Currently we have

  • 6th year prefects and mentors
  • 5th year mentors
  • TY mentors
  • Kindness ambassadors
  • Digital Ambassadors

The current staff team are as follows:

Ms Crossan TAP mentoring lead
Ms Travers 6th year
Ms Martyn 5th year
Ms Delagic and Ms Wisely Community Rep
Ms Margaret Kavanagh Kindness Ambassador
Ms Doyle Kindness Ambassador
Ms Crossan Archbishops Nominee

These groups have all received training to date and will be instrumental in setting up and facilitating our mentor programs and initiatives going forward.
