Suggested Wording – Recruitment of Staff

< Back

We have prepared some wording to describe the intandem programme which you should use in your recruitment materials:

intandem, Scotland’s mentoring programme for young people, brings together young people and volunteer mentors to build a consistent and trusting relationship, to work on goals and improve their chances in life. The Scottish Government has appointed Inspiring Scotland to lead the development of the intandem programme with 12 partner charities.

(Please note that the word intandem should start with a lower case i.)

If you wish any further text to describe intandem, please feel free to include either or both of the following:

intandem aims to promote the wellbeing of each and every child or young person who is matched with a mentor.

The focus in every mentoring relationship is on recognising and building a young person’s strengths, and providing support and encouragement to cope with difficult and challenging situations in their lives.
