"As a mature student it is easy to assume
that people think you will automatically know how to act, think and work
when you have finished your degree and enter the big wide world.
Guidance from a mentor, no matter how small can be invaluable"
" Great if you want to broaden your horizons,
explore your potential, or simply refine your transferable skills, open
your mind and apply for a place on the mentoring scheme?"
"The mentoring programme introduced me to
goal setting and self-employment awareness, as well as introducing me to
someone who helped and encouraged me?"
What Do Mentors Say
"I can do as little or as much as I want to"
"I get a great deal of satisfaction by helping people and it helps me brush up my interpersonal skills."
"I really enjoy it! Helping others is a way of putting something back into society and is very rewarding."
"Mentoring is a wonderful way of keeping
up to date with my own skills and the fact that I am helping people at
the same time makes it so worthwhile."
