The idea of mentoring came about because we thought it would be a good idea for younger students to have a specific older student they could contact if they had any questions.
We are intending contact to be primarily over email, and casual, with as much or as little contact between mentor and mentoree as they feel happy with. We don’t intend for this to be a massive drain on anyone’s time.
In matching people up, we tried to put those in similar circumstances together – for example mature students, Welsh speakers or those who live outwith Cardiff.
If you have any problems, for example you don’t feel your mentor is quite answering your questions, or if you don’t feel you can continue to be a mentor because of your own workload/personal life, please get in contact with us. We will continue to pair up people throughout the year so also get in contact if you’d like to be a part of this.
Alternatively, if your mentoring has gone well, feel free to leave us a lovely comment below so we can see it’s working 😉
