Meetings and celebration events

All members of the IoD Student Mentoring Scheme (both students/mentees and mentors) meet as a group four times to share ideas, learning and networks. This is in addition to the monthly meetings between mentee and mentor.

  • Session one - connecting mentees with mentors
  • Session two -  focus on networking
  • Session three - developing your interview skills
  • Session four -  a celebratory event, where mentees and mentors get certificates/gifts for taking part.

Mentors and mentees have learned a lot from the sessions and had fun too. Follow the links to the news stories below and find out more about what we get up to at our get together meetings.
