WHAT IS CAREER MENTORSHIP?
It is a programme that connects students with professionals, based on their industry of interest. Students will be mentored to develop themselves personally and professionally.
WHY IS MENTORSHIP IMPORTANT?
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.
WHAT ARE THE LEARNING OUTCOMES?
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.
