TESP calls for industry mentors

The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) is calling for people from all corners of the electrotechnical industry to donate just 45 minutes of their time to mentor a young person.

So far, The Youth Group has supported over 1.7 million young people across all sectors of UK industry. Under a new partnership, TESP is now working with The Youth Group to build a network of mentors with electrotechnical experience to inspire and inform young people about electrical opportunities.

The minimum commitment is to support just one 45 minute online mentoring session with a young person.

If as a mentor you choose to continue, you can speak to a variety of different job seekers and share your experiences and insights, or work with one individual and support them on their journey to develop and get a job.

As an added benefit, for each mentoring session carried out via The Youth Group, a tree will be planted in one of the National Parks across the UK as part of the ‘Net Zero with Nature’ programme.

Jack Parsons, CEO of The Youth Group says: “I’m over the moon that TESP and The Youth Group are going to be working together to pioneer a new wave of mentoring in the electrotechnical industry. It’s so important that young people who want to get into this sector are provided with the hope, skills, and opportunities they need to reach their full potential in work.”

Ruth Devine, Chair of TESP, adds: “We can’t wait to start working with The Youth Group and calling our industry experts to action. The electrical industry presents fantastic opportunities in areas such as new technologies and low carbon solutions, so we’re confident our mentors will be able to provide informative and inspirational advice to young people.”
