Mentor students anytime, anywhere, as little or often as you like

Mentoring has a significant and observable impact on behaviour, attainment and progression [including avoidance of criminality, drug abuse and school exclusions].  

– Careers & Enterprise Company

How does it work?

You could be an experienced CEO or a young Apprentice, working full-time, part-time or self-employed – students want to hear about your working life and career experiences!

By sharing the small, everyday steps you take, you’ll give students (aged 13-25+) invaluable career insights and inspiration that isn’t usually available to them.

With your online advice in 1-on-1 conversations, they’ll build an actionable career plan to help determine which moves they can make today to get into their dream careers.

You can choose to communicate anonymously, with or without your employer knowing and delete at any time.
