What is mentoring? 

Mentoring is when someone with more knowledge in an area helps a less experienced person. It is a learning partnership. 

Mentoring is about helping people to make their own informed decisions and it has big benefits for both parties. At University College Birmingham, mentors don’t teach or tell learners what to do. Trust is essential – and the partnership can be great fun, too. 

UCB is involved in a number of different mentoring initiatives. If you are interested in joining a scheme as a learner or a mentor, please click on the relevant links below:
