What is Mentor Link?

The course is broken down into one introduction and 5 sessions designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to build a successful mentoring relationship.

You will work through topics, including:

  • Understanding the roles and responsibilities of a positive mentor and mentee relationship
  • Developing your self-awareness in relation to strengths and areas for development
  • Identifying the kind of advice you need from a mentor and learning how to frame this through clear, measurable objectives
  • How to look for and how to effectively approach a mentor

With each session, you’ll have the opportunity to read through relevant materials and complete tasks to develop business communication skills, confidence, networking abilities and professionalism.

You’ll also be rewarded for your participation by gaining a certificate upon completion as proof of the skills you’ve developed, which can be used as further evidence towards the Hallam Award.

What are the benefits?

  • Develop the skills and confidence to find your own mentor
  • Work through a structured programme at your own pace
  • Boost your career readiness
  • Reflect on what you’ve learned
  • Use what you’ve learned to gain the Hallam Award

Who can apply?

You don't need to apply! The programme is flexible, allowing you to start and finish at a time that suits you, however, the sooner you complete it the sooner you increase your chances of gaining a mentor. Mentor Link is for any current Sheffield Hallam University student, studying any course at any level.
