MENTORING PROGRAMME ​

This is a tailored innovative service where resources, education, experiences, and information are shared to speed up the success process for our future leaders. Our mentoring programme supports students in the difficult transition from full-time student to employment. We have teamed up with mentors from top global organisations to be part of our mentor list.

REVERSE MENTORING PROGRAMME​

This covers business, finance, law, and politics. Diverse students and our alumni leaders act as mentors to senior leaders. Mentors share their perspectives and experiences and in so doing inform those making leadership and business decisions to help increase diversity, equity, and inclusion. These are leaders at the top of their profession who are CEOs of global organisations, judges, managing directors, board directors, Members of Parliament, and so on where everyone can learn from each other.

 

Our mentors and mentees improve their knowledge, skills, and understanding exchange and reduce silo mentality. Reverse mentoring is also known to have a positive impact by listening and learning. A few examples include becoming more sophisticated about technology, social media, driving culture change, and promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.

Note: Any rude and uncooperative attitudes will result in the scholarship award and mentoring being withdrawn immediately. Respect is paramount. ​
