Mentoring at the School for Social Entrepreneurs

Mentoring has been a part of the SSE's core learning programme for social entrepreneurs over the last 14 years.  The SSE has developed relationships with numerous organisations to provide employee engagement opportunities to their employees through mutual mentoring with the SSE's students and fellows. These organisations include:

No special skills are needed to be a mentor as the role is primarily that of being a sounding board for someone as he or she develops ideas for the project he or she is working on. Often, however, mentors do bring a set of skills different from those of the student or Fellow and it is in the cross-fertilisation of those points of view that the value is found.


"I had high expectations and haven't been disappointed. The mentor-student workshop was inspiring and having such close exposure to such high level corporate experience has been truly amazing."

 Dennis Byrne, Sussex Prisoner Families
