myFuture Connections is a mentoring scheme that is open to students in all years and subject. It connects students with alumni and business partners of Leeds Trinity University to help with the transition from university to graduate employment. Nurturing experienced and well-rounded graduates is our vision and providing students with the opportunity to connect with professionals is a key strategy to helping us achieve this.
Mentoring will involve communications between November 2020 - February 2021. These can take place over email, phone or Skype.
Timings the programme
|September 2020||Alumni and Business Partners are invited to participate in the scheme as mentors|
|September - October 2020||Students can apply to be mentees|
|November 2020||Matching takes place and all mentors and mentees are contacted|
|November 2020||Mentoring begins|
|February 2021||Mentoring takes place until Friday 26 February 2021|
Although we can’t promise to match everyone, we will communicate with everyone at every stage of the process. Once matched, objectives for each mentorship will be devised to provide a structure to the partnership. The scheme requires regular communications from both parties, we recommend a minimum of three hours of contact time in total.
We have devised handbooks for both mentors and mentees to provide further information on best practice, timings, expectations, top tips and how we’ll keep in touch throughout the scheme.
