Workplace Mentoring Scheme, London City campus

The launch of this pilot scheme took place at the London City Campus on 6th November.

Its purpose is to:

–          Match students to mentors in areas of employment or types of company in which the student is interested

–          Provide the student with a true insight of the professional world, culture, responsibilities and expectations, and the opportunity to expand their professional network

–          Allow students to draw on the knowledge and experiences of those in practice/employment (some mentors are running their own businesses for example) or involved in the recruitment process

–          Foster the development of links between BPP’s Careers Service, students and employers

–          Providing students with opportunities to develop essential skills that employers want, such as communication skills, problem solving and the ability to meet deadlines  (and in so doing practicing BPP’s “Career Ready” strategy)

–          Aid career development – mentors will share their experiences, answer your questions, make suggestions and signpost you to other sources of guidance and information that will help you develop in your career. This can be in relation to a CV, covering letter, application form and successful interview techniques.

There will be a minimum of 3 meetings (not necessarily face-to-face) over a 4-5 month period. The scheme will run through formally to March 2015.
