Mentoring  Circles

Over the past 12 months Building Pathways has successfully provided mentoring circles at job centres to young people wanting to get into the construction industry, as part of a Sector Work Based Academy approach.

We have also adapted the model to deliver mentoring circles remotely using Zoom or Google Meet platforms.
