Partnership for London have been coordinating job shadowing opportunities for colleagues working within the youth sector. Previously the focus has been on creating more chances for co-workers to Continue Professional Development – particularly those who have fewer chances to make use of non-mandatory training. They now want to continue this but with a focus on peer mentoring.

With so many of us now working remotely, and constantly adjusting emotionally and physically to how we do our jobs, this might be a fitting time to broker relationships between colleagues who need support/training, using Microsoft Meetings. It could be a couple of hours with a CEO pulling your business plan together, some coaching around a particular challenge you are facing in your work or some non-managerial supervision.
Partnership for London are keen to establish this initiative in the current period of change, as a means of support, as well as skills development. If you would like further information contact sandra.vacciana@cityoflondon.gov.uk
