TESP calls for industry mentors
The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) is working with The Youth Group to build a network of mentors with electrotechnical experience to inspire and inform young people about electrical opportunities. The organisations are calling for people from all corners of the electrotechnical industry to donate their time to mentor a young person.
 Mentoring requirements
The minimum mentoring commitment is to support just one 45 minute online session with a young person. If mentors choose to continue, they can speak to a variety of different job seekers and share their experiences and insights, or work with one individual and support them on their journey to develop and get a job.
The Youth Group is a youth first business that provides young people across the world with the tools they need to get ahead and grow in work. As of April 2021, The Youth Group has supported over 1.7 million young people across all sectors of UK industry.
