One-to-one mentoring can give students the know-how to thrive in their future career and help them work out what they want to do after graduation. Since 2016, 37 alumni have taken part in the Alumni Leadership Mentoring Programme by helping develop students’ leadership, networking and communication skills in a professional and supportive environment.
Through one-to-one meetings, mentors help students to explore their strengths and weaknesses and how to make the most of them in a professional setting. The mentors also support students with their communications and relationship building skills. Our students feed back that the programme helps to build their confidence as they begin their career.
Leadership mentors are just some of the 994 Leeds alumni who have given more than 14,000 hours of mentoring time for Leeds over the last three years.
