Share your knowledge and enter into a mutually beneficial relationship with our students Share your knowledge and enter into a mutually beneficial relationship with our students

Students appreciate guidance from people like you, who can share their skills and experience gained in the world of work, to help them with the tricky first steps into graduate employment.

Students may:

  • Not know what career they would like to pursue after their degree.
  • Want to start their own business but not know where to start.
  • Have low confidence about entering the workplace.
  • Need more specific understanding of the profession or sector in which they are considering a career.

How you can help

  • Share your knowledge and experience to inspire others.
  • Help students find their own career pathway.

How you can benefit

  • Develop your coaching skills
  • Boost your professional confidence
  • Feel good about making a difference. 

Whether you can give ½ hour, 6 hours or more in a year, you could make a valuable difference to the future of a student.

If you are interested in helping a student build their confidence and find their way, register your interest.
