Mentoring scheme for businesses

British businesses will now have access to more knowledge and support as a new mentoring scheme launches, and through a brand new web portal. The Government has worked alongside the private sector to improve access to, and stimulate the demand for, mentoring.

Set up by the UK’s five largest high street banks, the scheme will offer support on a range of issues faced by businesses, from finance to marketing to HR.

The website provides a single point of access for those seeking mentoring and those seeking to be mentors, covering the whole of the UK.

The Government wants to encourage experienced business people to sign up to mentor new and growing businesses.
