Workplace mentoring programme

All students in the BSc (Hons) Healthcare Management, Policy and Research degree are allocated a workplace mentor.

Your mentor will help you to develop your career management skills - advising you on how to increase your employability skills, helping you to develop your network of career contacts, talking to you about how they developed their own careers and offering insight into the workplace and into the graduate schemes they have successfully completed.

How will it work?

You will be introduced to your mentor at the start of Year 2 at a "Meet your Mentor" event. Mentors will be alumni of the NHS Graduate Scheme, GSK graduate alumni and other schemes or employers working for placement providers.

Your mentor will arrange with you to spend a day at their place of work in a "Day in the Life Event" during which you will spend time with different staff in their organisations in order to gain insight into the work environment before your placement.

Mentors will be available to support you through your placement and will also help you think through career options during your final year of study.
