GradLink Mentoring Programme
GradLink aims to develop current students’ knowledge of the labour market and career paths, through nurturing career learning relationships with alumni mentors working in a range of career areas.
Volunteering as a mentor involves meeting with a small group of students (up to 3 per mentor) on approximately three occasions during the Hilary Semester. The focus of these meetings is generally professional development and other career-related topics. The time commitment of the programme to mentors is approximately 10 hours, inclusive of the Launch Event.
The Launch event takes place on the 2 November at 6pm in the School of Nursing and Midwifery
As part of the launch event, we ask each graduate to speak for one to two minutes on their career to date. The overview could include a short synopsis of your profile, topics that you can best help students with in a mentoring capacity and any mentoring benefits you have experienced in your life. Following this, we will host a wine reception for the mentors, students and academic staff from the School. This is a networking style event where each of the mentors give a three minute synopsis of their career experience to date followed by a wine reception and an opportunity for the students to talk to the mentors. You can sign up to participate as a mentor for the School of Nursing and Midwifery GradLink programme by registering online

This programme has been very successful both in the school and across college and feedback from the alumni participants has been very positive. We would be delighted to have you as a participant in this programme and hope that we get the opportunity to welcome you back as a GradLink mentor.
