Help inspire and guide University of Greenwich students by getting involved in our Career Mentoring Scheme. You could help make a difference to our students by offering 2 hours a month for 5 months.

What is the Career Mentoring Scheme?

The Career Mentoring Scheme helps University of Greenwich students to plan and prepare for placements or internships through involvement in a mentoring relationship with a professional. The scheme is flexible: meetings and activities are mutually agreed between mentor and mentee for the duration of the five months, from February to June 2020, communicating via e-mail or telephone and face-to-face meetings. Mentees are usually undergraduate students looking to undertake a placement as part of their degree and graduate work or postgraduate students also looking to undertake a placement as part of their degree, but usually more interested in setting up their own businesses.

How long is the scheme?

A mentor will provide their mentee with career-focused support through two hours of contact time per month. The next wave starts on the 24th of February and ends in June 2020. There will be a review midway and an award ceremony on the 4th of June 2019, where mentors and mentees will receive their certificates followed by a celebratory reception.

Once matched, it is the mentee’s responsibility to get in touch with their mentors first.
