STUDENTS at Leeds Trinity University have been given extra support during lockdown with a mentoring programme.

Launched in September 2020, the myFuture Connections programme was created by the University’s graduate employment team, which supports current students and alumni up to three years after they graduate. Students have had the opportunity to receive one-to-one mentoring with business professionals, alumni and University staff. The programme has been delivered remotely alongside online learning and teaching, with almost 70 professionals supporting Leeds Trinity students as mentors. The five-month programme was designed for students to gain confidence, build relationships and network, seek advice in their subject area, develop their CVs and gain insight into potential careers after graduating.
