Employer Mentoring Programme

Are you in 3rd or 4th year?
Develop key skills for your future & boost your confidence with the UWS Employer Mentoring Programme!

What Is Employer Mentoring?
Employer Mentoring is where a professional person gives their time to share their experience of work with a student mentee.
The programme is designed to motivate and inspire students.
What Will I Get Out Of It?
You will have the opportunity to explore a range of things. Previous participants felt it helped them to feel more confident about…
• The skills/experience they already had
• Potential directions/options open to them
• How to address their weaknesses
• Their interview skills
What Students Have Said…..
“Do it! It’s really helpful!”
“It was very useful for me as I didn’t have any experience in my chosen career path. My mentor gave me an insight into the HR world and how to prepare my CV.”

“My mentor has helped me gain more confidence and has helped me a lot. I would definitely recommend for students to give it a go.”

How Does It Work?
You will be matched with a supportive employer mentor who will meet with you on a one-to-one basis, usually in their workplace. Mentoring can help you to:
• Get a better understanding of what employers are looking for
• Enhance your communication skills
