Become an Attendance Mentor

Join us in the mission to make every school day count for every child.

With over 125,000 pupils severely absent during the Autumn term, the urgency is clear – we cannot afford to let any more precious hours slip away. As an Attendance Mentor, you’ll help students develop the coping strategies they need to return to the classroom. 

 Sign up now and your local team will contact you shortly.

What do Attendance Mentors do?

As an Attendance Mentor, you'll be at the forefront of the Department for Education's Attendance Mentor programme, making a tangible difference in the lives of pupils and families. Your responsibilities will include:

Develop a trusting, honest relationship with pupils and providing emotional support

Work closely with the pupils and families to identify drivers of their poor attendance

Support absent pupils in getting back into the classroom


Act as a positive role model to improve pupils' attitudes towards attendance and learning. 

Listen carefully to pupils and help them gain insight and self-awareness.

Provide targeted support in line with existing care plans.

Help mentees access new networks including extracurricular activities and other support

Make referrals to external specialists services if required.

Monitor progress,  provide feedback and celebrate successes with the pupils.

Available training for Attendance Mentors

As an attendance mentor, you will have access to a range of training and support, including a one-day training course authored by our award winning mental health and wellbeing partner Thrive. 

The Thrive
Developmental Model


The Thrive developmental model training ensures Mentors understand how young people develop socially and emotionally, and are able to identify and develop age-appropriate attitudes and behaviours so that young people are ready to attend school and engage in learning.  

Supporting all the
Pupil's Needs

In addition to Safeguarding as standard, Teaching Personnel runs regular CPD ideal for Teaching Assistants, Teachers and Mentors  including workshops on adopting a trauma informed approach, providing practical approaches for working with your pupils.
