Career Mentoring for 16-18 year olds

Given the many challenges and uncertainties created over the past year, we have set up a young person’s career mentoring programme. One of the most important and valuable things in life is having advice from those around us. If you ask successful people later in life about the ‘secret’ of their success, they will not point to a single event, but they will often point to a single person who took the time to talk to them and provide them with advice, support and encouragement when they most needed it.

We have a number of trained mentors who can provide advice and guidance to young people, between the ages of 16 and 18, who may be asking themselves some of the most important questions about their future studies and careers. A mentor will offer up to three 1-hour  sessions to discuss career choices and provide advice. If you are interested and would like to be connected with a mentor, please contact Daniela at
