The Mentoring Programme

Your time is precious. Use it wisely

At Pearson College London, we are all about delivering an educational experience inextricably linked to real world business. Our reputedly strong industry links are a key part of our success story in delivering work-ready graduates to the world.

As part of our commitment to nurturing future talent, we are now recruiting mentors from across a variety of business sectors to maintain relationships with our growing cohorts of undergraduate students.

If you have what it takes to inspire the leaders of tomorrow through your own experience, we would love you to join us.

How does it work?

Mentors and mentees are paired based on industry sectors and will require a 6 month commitment. Mentors will be expected to meet with their mentee at least once a month.

It takes less time than you think

On average, a mentor will commit just 60 minutes a month with a mentee. This time is focused around personal development and can be achieved face-to-face, online, by email or by telephone. The mentor can set the agenda based on the needs of the mentee. The College can facilitate communal meeting space within our campus, or sessions can be held off-site.

We value experience

In general, we look for mentors who are senior leaders within an organisation, but also value those who have recently graduated with two years industry experience and can share their experience of securing their first role.

If you’ve never mentored before, we can provide all the tools and training you need to be effective in your role, and this can count towards your personal and professional CPD.

What are the benefits to you?

Talent spotting: becoming a mentor gives you unrivalled access to the talent pool that exists within Pearson College London, a boutique provider of Degree and Higher level business education.

Talent nurturing: mentors are in a unique position to see our philosophy of real-world learning in action, and contribute to the learning outcomes for the next crop of future leaders.

Valuable insights: What better way to learn about Gen Z and millennials than spending personal time with them? The period you spend with a mentee can provide you with key business insights into how the younger demographic think, feel and experience the world around them.
