What is the time commitment? Expand During school term time (30 weeks per year approximately) you will be required to commit to 4 hours of paid work per week on your project placement. This will be split 2 hours planning & preparation at a time that is convenient for you, and 2 hours delivery of your mentoring project at the same time each week. In addition, there will be personal development opportunities such as networking events, webinars and core training. Some of these will be fixed evening sessions, but you will also be able to organise some activities to fit your personal schedule. We estimate that you’ll spend an additional 2 hours per week on personal development.
