Share your knowledge

Could you help a student to career success by starting a one-to-one mentoring relationship?

Become a mentor

Mentoring is a powerful tool and as a mentor you can make a big difference. 

You'll help students set personal goals and support them in managing their own teaching and development. You'll share your knowledge, experience and expertise and help your mentee gain an edge in the competitive job market.  And at the same time as gaining the satisfaction of helping students you'll expand your own perspective and enhance your own personal development.

The following run mentoring programmes:

Don't see your department? Why not sign up for the Leeds Network to give online careers advice. This is a less formal form of mentoring, and you could give advice via email to a larger number of students.

Nurturing Talent Mentor of the Year Andrew Wiseman

Mentor of the year

Andrew Wiseman (Economics 1996) tells us about winning the 'Mentor of the Year' award for his involvement in Leeds University Business School's Nurturing Talent Mentoring Scheme

"I was very proud to receive the Mentor of the Year award – but moreover I’ve taken great pride from witnessing Alex’s development during the year that we’ve spent together.

"When I signed up for the scheme, it seemed like a wonderful way of sharing some of my skills with future business leaders – and it was something that I really wish I’d had during my days of study.

"It was especially useful for me to have been matched with a fellow first generation university student – as it meant there were a lot of shared experiences that we could both pull on.

"I firmly believe that the Nurturing Talent scheme is an innovative way for LUBS to help prepare its students for future success in the commercial world, and I look forward to helping other mentees to tap into their potential in coming years”
