Inspirational image : The Future is Bright

Hi, my name is Louise Easthope and I work for a company called Leicestershire Education Business Company (LEBC). We are passionate about careers and helping young people to reach their potential.

We run a business mentoring programme, which can help YOU to reach your goals. Young people in the programme meet with business mentors on a monthly basis to talk about their career goals and aspirations.

We understand that a lot of young people are unsure about which career to pursue and that there is a lot of choice out there in the world of work, which can be overwhelming! Mentors are experienced business representatives who are well placed to support and help you with any areas of personal development and improvement.

YOU control the focus of the mentoring sessions, which can focus on exam revision techniques, confidence building, CV writing, interview techniques or learning a new skill. Some of our mentees have chosen to focus on practical sessions, including cake baking and decoration and woodwork projects.

As part of the mentoring programme, you will also have access to other support which will help you to be the best that you can be! This includes:

  • Work experience placements;
  • Careers advice and support;
  • Psychometric testing;
  • CV writing;
  • Workshops led by qualified careers advisers;
  • Confidence and motivation workshops;
  • Access to helpful resources;
  • Volunteering opportunities;

You have nothing to lose by joining the programme and EVERYTHING to gain.

If you would like some more information about mentoring, give me a call on 0116 2407000 or email me at louise.easthope@leics-ebc.org.uk. To sign up for the programme, please register your interest with your Social Worker.

Join the programme today and start to make a difference!

The best way to predict the future is to CREATE it.
