Mentor a student
Mentoring is a great way to help enhance employability of our students. Every mentoring relationship is different and students have varied needs when it comes to finding a suitable mentor. A student might want to have a mentor in a sector they're interested in as a career, or they might want a mentor who will specifically work with them to increase their confidence. It might be that you meet with your student once a month, or it could be only every couple of months. We work with you and the student to ensure every match is as relevant as possible.
At present, mentoring opportunities are assigned on a needs basis. Students may have requested a mentor or they may have been recommended one as part of their ongoing development. We will get in touch with you when an opportunity arises that matches your profile and you'll have the chance to discuss this with a member of the Alumni Relations team before accepting the match. From there, we will work with you to ensure you feel as supported as possible throughout the relationship.
How do I sign up?
If you'd like to be listed as a potential mentor on our database then all you need to do now is fill out a quick five minute form. We will keep this information to hand and we will get in touch when an opportunity comes up. We appreciate that your time commitments may change throughout the year, so we will be in touch twice a year to confirm you're happy to still be a mentor and to check if any of your details have changed.
If you have any questions about mentoring at LSBU, please contact the Alumni Office on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7815 6712.
