About the Role
Creative Mentoring and Starfish Mentoring are our two mentoring programmes based
at AIMCommunity. Both incorporate 1-2-1 and small group work using creative
elements to engage and support young people.
Creative Mentoring focuses more on the ‘creative’ aspect of work that a young person would like to focus on and Starfish mentoring has a specific focus on providing opportunities for young people to develop their skills, confidence and personal development.
Both mentoring programmes use Youth Work principles as the underpinning for the
work carried out with young people. As a requirement of the role, after a probation
period (3 months), we will be able to enrol you in the Level 2 Award in Youth Work
Practice (unless you already have a previous Youth Work Practice qualification).
This will be a qualification that can be completed over 3-4 months, using your work
based practice as evidence alongside additional learning hours.
