As part of international mentoring day we are delighted to be launching a new mentoring programme and we are looking for students to volunteer to be mentors and make a difference.
The Believe, Achieve, Mentor and Empower (BAME) Programme has been uniquely designed for students that identify as Black, Asian, Mixed Heritage or Minority Ethnic. The programme aims to improve the experience of Black, Asian and Mixed Heritage and Minority Ethnic students, enhance learning, celebrate success and support collaboration.
Mentoring provides opportunities for students to build a reciprocal relationship through empathy, listening, providing guidance and shared experiences. The Believe, Achieve, Mentor and Empower programme will support students from a range of different cultural backgrounds to create a sense of community and mutual understanding.
Why become a Believe, Achieve, Mentor and Empower Mentor?
Mentoring provides a great opportunity for you to inspire another individual. As a mentor you will develop a wide range of transferable and employability skills, enhance your own academic performance and contribute positively to other student’s university experience.
Training will be offered through the University’s peer mentoring programme and all mentors will be expected to attend and complete the training sessions. The training will cover what mentoring is, the mentoring process, how to foster a good mentor-mentee relationship, how to support and provide guidance to other students and addressing disclosure and confidentiality issues. The training sessions promote inclusive practice, mutual respect and self-reflection.
