About Career Mentorship Programme
Students often lack information and only see stereotypes about various occupations. This prevents them from making informed choices about their future.
Our mentorship programme helps students to sharpen the understanding of who they are and receive guidance from a mentor who has walked the path they hope to embark on.
Our Career Mentorship Programme achieves the following for students:
Connect students with industry professionals to receive guidance and support in order to understand the world of work.
Develop better clarity in making career decisions based on their interests, goals and life circumstances.
Develop a clear perception of their personality, including strengths, opportunities for growth, values and beliefs.
These learning outcomes are achieved through the engagement of experienced full-time working professionals who are passionate about mentoring youth along with carefully composed conversational prompts and hands-on experiential activities for the students.
The mentoring programme will focus on 2 pillars:
1. Personal Development
Mentees will be exposed to practical personal development concepts through personal reflection and introspection to develop self awareness, identify strengths and talents and explore interests
2. Career/Industry Insights
Mentees will be able to gain a nuanced understanding about an industry of interest.
Weekly sessions spread over 5 weeks, leading up to mentorship showcase on the last day.
Group coaching of 2 mentors to 6 mentees to maximise learning and exposure.
Mentoring sessions will be held online or at a physical space of preferred choice such as cafe, co-working spaces etc.
Below shows an overview of the career mentorship sessions in 5 sessions.
