“We had been running a mentoring programme internally at Dulwich College for 3 years and wanted guidance on how to expand its influence and effectiveness.

Through Adrian Sladdin’s experience and understanding, the boys were able to gain a comprehensive overview of all the issues we wanted to address and how we could bring the programme forward.   He was clear and comprehensive; the boys learned a huge amount over the 2 training sessions and he enabled us to become much more proactive and forward-thinking in our approach to mentoring.  We have introduced several new initiatives as a result of his training and the boys have taken ownership of the whole process.

We were very pleased that Adrian was able to make such significant changes in a short space of time and would highly recommend him to other schools looking to provide a meaningful peer mentoring service.”
