IntoUniversity are looking for corporate mentors to support Year 13 students from disadvantaged backgrounds to apply to university.
Mentors will be given the opportunity to develop a one-on-one relationship with a student, providing vital pastoral support during a difficult period of transition and opening their eyes to new career paths and opportunities.
The role of a mentor is to meet with their student mentee once a month for an hour throughout the academic year. Advice might centre around university applications, revision, applying for student finance, developing soft skills and providing support and encouragement. Mentors will also be required to make email contact three times with the student, once they have started their university course.
Please note that these volunteering appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check and suitable references.
This is a volunteering opportunity only and TOIL cannot be claimed for time spent volunteering.
