How does the programme work?
Each student is paired with a mentor for six months. During this time, students and their mentors meet regularly to have confidential discussions about relevant issues, exchange ideas and information, allowing the student to develop confidence, new skills and enhance their career prospects.
Full training is given to both mentors and mentees so that everyone can benefit as much as possible from the process.
Who can apply?
The programme is open to students who identify as Black Asian Minority Ethnic.
