Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster currently has a number of active Sector Groups and there are plans for at more to reflect its growing and changing membership. The BECBC Sector Groups are for members only and provide an invaluable forum for businesses to meet others in their industry, to find out about trends and opportunities and to share information and knowledge with potential partners, clients and suppliers.

Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster meetings are held every month and are a great opportunity to meet other members. Other BECBC events include monthly training workshops, the BECBC Business Awards and other networking events, as well as specialist Sector Group meetings.
Business School Engagement Events enable students to gain a better understanding of the world of work as well as meet local employers who are members of the cluster. The Charity Page signposts you to some local organisations.
MENTORING OPPORTUNITY; JOIN US AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE - Inspira
Posted by Hazel Duhy on
Inspira Cumbria are a local social enterprise working with SSL and the BECBC Socio Economic sub group on relationships and interactions with local schools. Over this summer they are looking to recruit mentors to work with secondary school students across West Cumbria. Could you do this?
They are looking for colleagues with some empathy, a willingness to talk about their own career path and work experience and an ability to enthuse and encourage young people. The activity is personally rewarding and developmental. We will provide a partnership certificate recording the contribution and skills of the mentor.
The focus of the work will be to try to help students to improve performance. Nominated students will be those not working to their potential; those whose current performance does not match their target grades. Sessions will be scheduled to coincide with student performance assessments which can be the focus of discussion.
We will provide a twilight training/briefing for nominated mentors in September. All mentors will be required to have a DBS clearance which Inspira will process if this is not already in place.
We expect a mentoring meeting in each half term; that is 6 sessions per academic year. We expect the session to last about 30 minutes including some brief recording. We would hope each mentor would work with 2 mentees; that is 1 -1.5 hours per mentoring visit. Mentors can commit to more contact than this by agreement with their school and employer but we are not setting this expectation.
