Mentoring

Career Mentoring Programme

This mentoring programme matches professionals (mentors) with Lancaster University students (mentees). It provides a wonderful opportunity for mentees to gain ‘real-world’ insights, but also for mentors to share their wisdom.
The goal of the mentoring programme is to give both mentors and mentees the chance to help one another enhance their professional development in areas such as leadership and communication.We’re looking for employers who are interested in mentoring one of our students to help them launch their career.

The Lancaster Award

A Pledge for Lancaster Excellence

The Lancaster Award, developed in partnership with employers, rewards students for taking part in extracurricular activities. This could include volunteering, work experience or attending careers workshops, each time acquiring new skills and experiences valued by employers. 

The highest achieving Lancaster Award students are nominated for the Lancaster Excellence Awards. To reward their achievement, we invite employers to pledge an “experience” in their organisation for example a mentoring meeting with a senior leader, work shadowing or a behind the scenes insight experience of a dynamic and high profile industry. Do you have something interesting to share as a rewarding “money cannot buy” experience?
