STEM Learning: Inspire future engineering leaders, become an Arkwright Mentor – Smallpiece Trust
Want to help nurture the next generation of engineering leaders?
The Arkwright Engineering Scholarships, run by the Smallpeice Trust, support high-calibre aspiring engineers over two years as they study for their A-levels or Scottish Highers. They are looking for mentors from all engineering disciplines to support and guide outstanding 16-18 year olds during this critical stage in their education.
The mentoring form and time is flexible so you can fit it around your schedule. You will be able to communicate with and support your mentee via an online portal. Scholars value the answers to general questions such as ‘What’s it like to study at university?’ as much as they would more detailed technical insights.
The only requirement is that mentors must be DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked. All mentors will be provided with guidance as to what to expect from the programme and receive ongoing support.
There are currently over 60 mentees looking for a mentor. If you’re an Engineer looking to help inspire the next generation and interested in becoming an Arkwright Mentor, please contact: [email protected]
