Our Mentoring Service

 Welcome to our website.  

We believe that mentoring is 

one of the most important ways 

in which we can provide detailed 

and focused support for 

school leaders and governors 

with the challenges presented by 

key aspects of their roles for 

which specific training is not available. 

Mentoring provides a 'safe space', 

a private, professional environment 

underpinned by trust in which the 

freedom to share experiences and

discuss options is enabled. 

 

As we go through life, in both personal 

and professional circumstances, we 

choose our own mentors (usually 

unofficially) for the q​ualities that we 

respect about them and the insights 

they can provide on a given matter.   

The 'allocation' of an 'official' mentor 

can seem false, imposing, detached, and

an unwelcome intrusion into the process

of finding our own feet within a new role

or negotiating our own path through a

particular situation.


At I G N I T I O, we do not presume to 

tell professional colleagues how 

to do their jobs, but bring 

a resourced, listening approach

to sharing the benefit of our experience

and applying that to specific situations

identified by our clients.

but is not limited to:
