Title:BeatBullying Mentors Recruited at Doncaster College

Bullying is one of the biggest issues facing all young people. The good news is that there are lots of young people who want to do something about it and at Doncaster College thirteen Students volunteered to be BeatBullying Mentors.

BeatBullying Mentors are young people who receive two days intensive face-to-face training from BeatBullying staff. Once graduating they have the skills and confidence to mentor, guide, and support other young people on issues of bullying, cyberbullying and wellbeing.

After undergoing two days training the thirteen Doncaster College students, who come from courses throughout the college, received a certificate to mark their successful completion of the course and to acknowledge that they have been given the skills to mentor and offer advice and guidance. The training also deals with safeguarding and confidentially so mentors know how and when to pass on sensitive information and who to go to for support.

Bullies have been around forever, but cyberbullying is now recognised as a growing threat to young people as computer and mobile phone technology has given them a whole new platform for their actions. BeatBullying mentors have the knowledge and tools to tackle online bullying and offer the peer-to-peer support needed.

The College takes the safety of its students very seriously and
the BeatBullying scheme is part of a number of measures, amongst the College’s safe guarding programme, designed to support and inform young people and keep them safe.
