Industrial Mentoring Scheme

Help to develop future engineering and computer science talent by mentoring our enthusiastic and curious students.

Mentors help to build our students’ confidence and careers: an invaluable way to link their field of study with your real-world experience and expertise. These relationships can continue to develop, with some of our students undertaking subsequent internships and even graduate employment in their mentor’s workplace.

Our mentoring scheme is well-established, with numerous mentors returning for successive years. Furthermore, with no assessment duties required by mentors, only the students, it is a relatively low-level commitment; a potential CPD activity offset by access to future engineering and computer science talent.

If you have any questions, would like further information or to sign up, please refer to our ‘Mentoring scheme 2020’ and ‘Get in touch’ boxes on this page. We look forward to hearing from you!

Mentoring scheme 2021

We are currently discussing the format for the 2021 scheme in relation to the latest COVID-19 guidance.

In the meantime, our Mentoring FAQs and timeline (PDF, 388kB) for 2020‌ should help to offer some general insight into the purpose and benefits of the scheme (in its pre-pandemic format).

If you have any questions and/or would like to register your interest in mentoring in 2021, please contact Huw Andrews on

The experience of seeing how the next generation of engineers & leaders view the world has broadened my appreciation of how I might engage with graduates joining our business. I have done this in parallel with mentoring within the business which has helped add a richness to that.
