The programme is open to mentors who have an established career and gained experience in the world of work, from any sector or industry, however varied your career. As a mentor you will be keen to help students from widening participation, ethnic minorities or care leaver backgrounds progress their career and personal development.

University of Warwick staff are welcome to apply to be a mentor, so long as this would not cause a conflict of interest in your current role. We would recommend you read through the guidebook to fully understand the mentor role and approach your line manager to ensure they are happy for you to commit to the programme.

Benefits to becoming a mentor

  • Provide invaluable support to students to enable them to grow in confidence and develop both their professional and personal skills
