DCSYP Mentoring Programme

As a college, we realise that some people struggle with the pressures of a year long course. We have designed a programme which helps support those who are most vulnerable to engage on a smaller provision to help support them make good choices for the future.

Devon County Skills for Young People Mentoring Programme (DCSYP) is delivered at Petroc for any young person aged 15-24 who is Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) or who is at risk of becoming NEET. Petroc offers a one-to-one mentoring service alongside a certificated qualification with work experience.

Funded through the European Social Fund, Skills Funding Agency and CSW Group, the aim is to help build resilience, positivity and getting young people to find the best way to a brighter future.

If you are aged 15-24 and would like to get involved, please contact Clare on 07815 825193 or email clare.antell@petroc.ac.uk

The sessions are run over two days per week, either Monday and Tuesday or Monday and Friday. The groups are small and there is all the support needed to pass the qualification and gain skills in the workplace.

Alternatively, Clare can hold one-to-one mentoring sessions with young people until they are ready to join a group setting to hopefully relieve anxiety, build confidence, and address any barriers they may be facing about beginning their Further Education journey.

Please get in contact if you would like to take part in the programme or would like one-to-one mentoring sessions.
