Industrial Mentoring Scheme

Are you interested in developing future engineering and computer science talent?

The Industrial Mentoring Scheme connects undergraduate students with industrial mentors, to help understand the industries and gain skills to help their employability.  Volunteer mentors make this possible.

Why mentor our enthusiastic and curious students?

Our mentoring scheme is an established way to access and develop the next generation. While giving something back, you could meet a future colleague or intern. Mentoring could also count towards your Continuous Professional Development activity. Many of our mentors return for successive years, with some sharing six reasons why they take part.

Who can mentor?

Graduate Engineers and Computer Scientists with at least eighteen months’ work experience. If you have equivalent qualifications, please get in touch to discuss.

How will the 2022 scheme work?

Mentors will share their experiences and expertise with a small group of students. Groups will meet online at least three times, ideally four, between February and November 2022. We will provide guidance and support throughout.

How do I sign up for the 2022 scheme?

Please use the sign up form.

The deadline for signing up to the scheme is Thursday 20th January 2022.

If you have any questions, and/or would like us to add you to our mentoring contact list, please contact us through the ‘Get in touch’ box on this page. We look forward to hearing from you!

I would just like to say how impressed I am with the students. They seemed really engaged ... and they were full of questions in the final meeting. They were very keen to understand what they could do to improve their employability and how they might gain internship positions. It was a real pleasure to be involved with. And, of course, please sign me up for next year!
