Mentoring

Mentoring is one of the most effective forms of professional development for both the mentor and mentee. As a mentor, you will help students navigate the transition from university to work. 

  • Enhance your professional profile
  • Improve your coaching and mentoring skills
  • Connect with talented students (potential future employees)

Networking events

Social engagement and networking events can be just as important as training and inductions. This is why the Faculty hosts a number of social events throughout the year, where students, student partners, alumni and industry professionals share stories and experiences of working in partnership at the University. Mentors are also welcome to attend one of these sessions and be inspired with practical strategies for engaging as partners to enhance learning, teaching, and the university experience.
