SLP Meet a Mentor recruitment session 2
Wed 5 April 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 BST
Create Jobs is partnering with School of Logical Progression (SLP) and is delighted to announce the return of Meet a Mentor, a four-month pre-employment mentoring programme for 18-26 year olds seeking entry to the creative and digital industries.
The programme will run from April 2017 until July 2017, providing 15 young people with the opportunity to gain expert guidance from 15 inspiring, dedicated creative professionals – expanded from nine mentors and mentees in our inaugural programme.
Through a structured series of workshops and meetings, mentors will offer mentees support, encouragement and advice on how to get that bit closer to employment in their chosen field in the creative and digital industries.
Each session will bring together the cohort of 15 mentors and 15 mentees and will include talks, panel discussions and workshops (responding to live briefs, teamwork & presentation skills), as well as inspirational talks from people with stories to tell about their journey to their jobs. There will also be plenty of allocated time for the mentor and mentee to get to know each other, and to look at specific issues and goals relevant to each individual.
This will be a unique opportunity for experienced creative industry professionals to meet and support a young, talented person on their journey into employment or a change of career and to make a tangible difference to someone’s career prospects and to their professional lives. Create Jobs and SLP are both very passionate about giving opportunities to young people to help them fulfill their potential.
