Do you mean another thread from me, or on this subject?

The advert for the next group of trainee mentors for this project is out now. Just seen it on Lancashire County Council's website unver 'vacancies'

So, trainee mentors, huh? Which means the mentor would have a mentor and that mentor would have had a mentor. And you end up with senior mentor to a mentor who mentors trainee mentors.
I'm assuming these are publicly funded mentors? (ie, paid for by the taxpayer)

The mentors are to be mentored in their mentoring, I suppose. But their mentor would need to be someone who knows how to mentor rather than an inexperienced mentor who needed mentoring.

As I understand it, they're not running a Boot-Camp like other schemes. So, no... no steely-eyed dealers of death, no blanket stacking, no swingers of the lamp, no camnet dossers and no Walting.

Least I know there's a job for me back home if and when I leave. Oh wait no they won't this will all be forgotten about by the local education authority by the time Tuesdays edition of the LET hits my corner shop.

You seriously want to return to East Lancs when you leave? Good luck with that. Nice walking country the West Pennine moors but not much else to commend it.

Return? I still live there!

Complete waste of time. The whole soldiers for teachers will follow a similar route....
But we've got a Tory government now. I hear Michael Gove has his minions scouring German retirement homes looking for former Einsatzgruppen squaddies to deal with the discipline problems left behind by Labour.

Maybe so, but it won't be over night and some of could still benefit before it does get shelved perhaps?

Enlightening! Especially as there are a number of similar schemes through skillforce and the Princes Trust that are proving very successful.

This is the kind of idea I would have, along with some others - Masai debt collectors, Gurkha doormen and the like (I think some bright spark actually did that one)

The difference is that you should not use squaddies, but Shaolin monks. I thought of setting up a CP company and staffing it with them. A quick google reveals that there's a market. hu-qiong_1635956c.jpg

Hu Qiong, a 38-year-old monk who began studying kung fu at the Shaolin temple aged eight, was hired by the Liu family to accompany their daughter to and from school each day, according to the Shanghai Daily newspaper.

After dropping the young girl off at seven o'clock in the morning, Hu will scour the school premises for any sign of danger. In return, he receives a salary of around £1,000 a month.

In the past month there have been nine attacks involving young children, including five at kindergartens or primary schools. On Wednesday, a man in Shaanxi province stabbed seven children to death and two adults at a village kindergarten, injuring 11 more.

The spate of violence has triggered panic among Chinese parents and the government has ordered tens of thousands of police to mount extra patrols at schools.

The monk won notoriety two years ago at the China Martial Arts Stunts competition by holding a fast spinning electric drill to his head and stomach without sustaining any injuries. He also caught a running electric saw with his bare hands, winning him the nickname "Iron Man".

This is what happens when you buy tools from Aldi... should've put his hand in his pocket and bought a decent drill and some proper drill bits... doesn't impress me, just makes me think this fell is a cheap twat.
