The Career Mentor Scheme has been running successfully at QUT for over twenty years. Over the past few years we have been advising participants of our intention to review and redevelop this program, building on existing strengths, to create a transformed initiative that is relevant for the changing world of work, valuable for all participants, flexible, scalable and sustainable. The time to do this is now, as we’re finalising the results of an exciting digital Mentor Marketplace project which trialled online mentoring software, allowing students to connect with a mentor at any time, from any location, in various forms and duration.
In order to develop an innovative Career Mentoring initiative that is truly participant-centred and relevant for the Real World, we will be placing the Career Mentor Scheme as it currently exists, on hold for 2019. This will allow us to focus our energies on the redevelopment of a transformed initiative in 2020. As part of the process we will be inviting existing stakeholders to partner with us in this redesign over 2019.
We are excited by the opportunities this transformation will offer and look forward to relaunching the Career Mentor Scheme in 2020.
