Inspiring and Supporting our Team to Provide the Best Opportunities for Scotland’s Young People
We rely on committed partners to help us develop and support our programme and reach more young people to fulfil their potential. Our Partners include organisations of all sizes, from local businesses to national corporations. Support also comes from local authorities, including Glasgow City Council and its ALEOs.
Our partners encourage and support their staff to mentor. They also open their doors by hosting our young people on Talent Tasters – half day work experience sessions – that allow them to explore businesses and different roles.
We have also partnered with the University of Strathclyde Business School to create a revolutionary course based on MCR relationship based mentoring. The Leadership Through MCR Mentoring award builds exceptional leadership skills and is accredited at SCQF Level 7.
Research has shown that the best leaders are those leaders who can empathise with people. The best way that you can really learn to empathise with people is to work with others... in a very non-judgemental way.
I am hugely excited by the potential opportunities of this partnership with MCR Pathways. Their programme has proven results in terms of helping bring greater stability to the lives of a number of young people who have too few adults in their lives they can look to for support.
BITC Scotland is delighted to support MCR Pathway's arrival in Edinburgh. This is an excellent example of great collaboration between responsible business and the local community and we wish the project every success.
