Testimonials from 2020 Cohort

It is reassuring to know that it’s fine to try things out and have a go, and not be scared to move on. My mentor encouraged me to look for alternative routes, and I have been offered my own degree apprenticeship

 

Mentee, 18, North East England

Watching [my mentee] grow in confidence from session 1 to session 8 has been amazing. It has reminded me how quickly you can develop as a person in a short space of time with the right support in place.

I enjoyed the mentoring programme as it helped me gain confidence and also helped me with expanding my job options and knowledge on STEM

Mentee, 17, Northern Ireland

I have had opportunities to share the skills I have learnt at university and work such as interview skills/tips, networking and general professionalism. This programme has been an opportunity for myself to reflect on my own skills and share these with passionate women interested in entering the industry. I have also gained new insights from my mentee and what she hopes to bring to the industry in the future.
