Your Mentors

What is a mentor? Someone who can help guide you through TEC Life, support you when you need it, and be there if things get tough. 

Anyone on the staff team can be a mentor, students will decide who they like working with, who they feel safest with, who they feel they can learn from. A mentor will be there to listen to, hear and help navigate life within the school.

For some people their mentor is the person they like to go fishing with or ride motorcycles with, for others it’s the person they feel can help them with their life experience. We will make sure young people have someone to talk to when they need, someone who will support them and their needs.

A mentor will also work with a student to develop their plan ensuring students know exactly what they are going to achieve and how they’re going to achieve it. If students decide to change certain elements of their plan, or want to try new activities, the mentor is the best person to talk to – and they can usually accommodate student requests. Mentors ensure that students have a strong voice, we will always try to accommodate students desires and aspirations.

We want our students to:

Succeed in education

Knowledge and learning can equip young people for life, regardless of the subject. We’re focused on ensuring our students succeed.

Be happy and healthy

The most important achievement for our students is to be happy and healthy. We equip them with the tools they need to become this.

Build good relationships

Learning the skills to build healthy and strong relationships help our students to grow as individuals and become well-rounded adults.

Have a safe place to stay

Have a safe place to stay - Feeling safe and secure is crucial for many of the young people that walk through our doors. The stability & structure of TEC Life enables them to feel this.
