I’m an accountant who has been mentoring with Mosaic for over 3 years now, and have enjoyed each minute! From the world of work visits to the business mentoring, I have come across such great and intelligent mentees.
To see my mentees develop over a session gives me a great sense of achievement. The best memory I have is of one student who was on the world of work visit. They had never visited an office before and was at a crossroads with which GCSE’s to pick. Their parents had never worked so they didn’t have much insight into the working world. As they were walking around the office they told me of their surprise that not only are there a mixture of males and females, but they were also from different backgrounds, ethnicities and age groups.
They were able to see all the different departments in the office and the roles they played working together as teams. By the end of the day they said to me that they wanted to take GCSE Business Studies as they would love to work in an office and in the business environment!
