This Working Group is facilitated by Brightside.

This working group explores mentoring as a sustained intervention to help widen access to HE. Through discussion of topics relating to the delivery and evaluation of mentoring projects, it develops a set of useful resources for dissemination throughout the sector. The working group aims to establish how mentoring can most effectively be used to widen access, what are the pitfalls and top-tips for running mentoring projects, and how to use student ambassadors to best effect.

The group will discuss practical examples of mentoring, have an open forum for peer support and troubleshooting, and will feature a guest speaker at each meeting.
