Early in 2019, the Career Mentor Scheme was put on hold to help us focus on transforming it, trialling the concept of using digital platforms to facilitate the scheme. The trial explored online mentoring software, allowing students to connect with a mentor at any time, from any location, through a variety of mentoring models. The results demonstrated great benefits for both students and industry mentors and we are excited about the next phase.
QUT's mentoring community has expressed its strong desire for the mentor program to continue during this time of redevelopment. Based on this feedback, and to be able to continue gathering information which informs the digital transformation of the scheme, the Career Mentor Scheme team is running a transitional mentor scheme with a focus group beginning in the latter half of 2019.
If you are interested in mentoring a QUT student, let us know so we can keep you up to date.
We will soon be able to provide more information about the transformation of the scheme. The future Career Mentor Scheme will be truly participant-centred and relevant for the real world. We are really excited about this project and grateful for your continued involvement.
