This is a programme for all students, which aims to link you with professionals to enhance your employability through confidence building, networking and development of the key skills all employers seek. It is also a chance for you to learn about the opportunities available in specific career areas.
You will meet with your mentor once or twice a month between November and April, usually at the mentor’s workplace, although space can be made available at the university. The mentoring partnership will involve a minimum of 12 hours of your time.
With support from your mentor, you will draw up a Learning Contract setting out the objectives for the scheme, and how you can achieve them. The aim is to build a mutually supportive relationship, with objectives that could include;
- Improvement in study skills
- Building self confidence
- Time management
- Communication skills
You will be invited to attend an induction session, where you will be introduced to your mentor. We also hope you will feed back to us at regular intervals and we also organise a celebration evening to mark the end of the scheme in April/May.
