Coaching and Mentoring

Coaching and mentoring provides an opportunity to discuss concerns with your study and career plans, enabling you to share professional difficulties that you may be experiencing, and focus on your future professional development.

In addition, coaching and mentoring will help you enhance your confidence by having someone to believe in you, and will provide you with the opportunity to develop communication and other inter personal skills.

The University of Wolverhampton has a range of coaching and mentoring schemes suitable for all members of its community.
