Mentoring

Help steer and empower the next generation with as little as 6 hours of your time

What is mentoring?
Mentoring is a long term relationship that meets a developmental need. A mentor facilitates personal and professional growth in an individual by sharing the knowledge and insights that have been learned through the years. Simply put, mentors are people who help others to succeed.

Why become a mentor?
Being a mentor helps you to hone your skills in key areas such as listening, communication and coaching. However, probably the most rewarding aspect of being a mentor is knowing that you have contributed to the success of an individual by helping them to navigate the challenging transition from student to professional

About our schemes
Our schemes offer you a great opportunity to provide one-to-one support to University of Westminster students. They aim to link students with professionals to enhance their employability through confidence building, networking and developing key employment skills. Mentoring also offers students a chance to learn about the opportunities available in specific career areas.

The University of Westminster offers 3 different types of mentoring to our students, that run at different points throughout the year, normally requiring you to meet with your mentee once or twice a month over a 3 - 6 month period. 

  • The Careers and Employability Service Mentoring Scheme (Open to all Westminster Students)
  • The National Mentoring Consortium Scheme (For Undergraduate students from a Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background)
