Sign up to our mentor scheme

Have your say

COULD you help inspire and guide the next generation?

The Echo has joined forces with the University of Sunderland to find an army of mentors willing to share the benefit of their experience to help students hoping to carve out their own careers.

Following a successful pilot scheme last year, the University of Sunderland is again rolling out its Professional Mentoring Scheme next month.

The scheme draws upon the good will of employers and employees to improve students’ knowledge of the world of work by helping to prepare them for life beyond their time at university.

Students are matched by career interest with employers or employees from a range of public and private sector organisations across Sunderland. The pilot scheme, which saw the university signing up more than 60 mentors, proved so successful that this year it was decided to widen the opportunity to many more students, and seek even more individuals from diverse job roles to register as mentors.
