The interview

After you have attended an orientation evening, you have a chance to decide whether you would like to continue with your application to become a mentor.

We will be in contact to see whether you would like to come in for an interview with our caseworkers. If so, you will come in to our office to meet with two of our caseworkers for an in-depth interview lasting around one to two hours.

At the interview, the caseworkers will talk to you about your background and childhood to find out more about you, as well as discussing your relationships and life now, your core values and looking at how you manage the challenges in your life. This helps them to assess whether this is the right time for you to become a mentor.

Your caseworker will call you following the interview, to discuss the next steps.
