Many of the mentorships we offer do not necessarily require experience or qualifications for you to get started. However, this will still depend on the mentor you pick. Some of them have basic requirements so you will have to check those on the mentor’s dedicated profile. Other than that, you will only need a computer and a stable Internet connection to get started with the process.
Mentoring is an excellent tool for boosting your professional development and career advancement. When you work with one of our mentors, you can expect to receive professional support in the sector or role you are trying to pursue or are already in. This support may involve the availability of your mentor to provide insight and advice on issues, delegate assignments and tasks, offer actionable coaching, and deliver constructive feedback.
The externship and mentorship program is completed over 10 weeks in which you will be working with a vetted mentor to help increase your skills and confidence in the sector you want.
You will be assigned tasks to work on, receive feedback, get support and help to cement the knowledge you have in a practical environment.
Our mentors come from a variety of sectors and have their respective areas of specialisation. To ensure that we provide quality mentoring experience to graduates and young professionals, we have set up a vetting process that carefully assesses the ability of prospective mentors to share their experience and expertise. Likewise, we have an ongoing process of assessment throughout the mentors’ service to make sure that they are doing their job of assisting mentees and improving their work abilities.
