Could you be an online mentor?

Would you like to help a student make the right career choices and get ahead? Volunteer as an online mentor and your experience could make all the difference to someone just starting out. Expert staff in the University’s Employment Zone match mentors with current students based on key criteria, such as interest in a specific sector or profession and what they want to achieve.

Mentors have access to a wide range of guidance and support materials to help them develop their own skills while encouraging their student mentee.

Using the secure website we have developed with The Brightside Trust, our mentors and mentees can hold these conversations online. Our mentors can log on from anywhere in the world, whenever they want to – which means that they can fit their mentoring into their busy schedules as flexibly as they need.

Graduate Profiles

ECU alumni go on to a variety of exciting and successful careers and we want to celebrate these achievements whilst encouraging others to continue their education with ECU. The Alumni Association is looking for alumni who are proud of their relationship with the University to provide a graduate profile that may be used in the University’s various marketing campaigns and activities.
