As part of our on-going dedication and support to Kingston's diverse student population, we offer a range of mentoring schemes which reach out to specific student groups (black minority ethnic, disability, women in science, engineering, technology and maths).
Each six-month programme is designed to be mutually beneficial, providing key transferable skills to the mentee and offering a development opportunity for the mentor, enhancing communication skills and helping to develop another individual outside of a typical work environment. We are looking for volunteers to be involved in mentoring students with disabilities or learning differences from October/November 2013 until April/ May 2014.
Full training will be provided in advance and no prior experience of mentoring is required. All we are looking for is a commitment of six months which will include two hours per month mentoring as well as initial training.
If this sounds like an opportunity you or your organisation would like to be part of, we'd love to hear from you. Please contact Ray Harte in the KU Talent team email@example.com to sign up and for more information by Friday 30 August 2013.
If you are interested in mentoring students from these specific student groups – black minority ethnic, disability, women in science, engineering, technology and maths – please contact my colleague, Karl Watson at K.Watson@kingston.ac.uk by Friday 30 August 2013.
