OPEN NOW! Lincoln School of Film & Media undergraduates can APPLY for LSFM Industry Mentoring (2017-18). Our superb School-Industry opportunity is for TWENTY selected students to be mentored by a professional who volunteer their time from the world of work. Currently our mentors are working in BBC TV, radio, film, & audio production, at Hello! magazine, in photography and in multimedia jobs from social media to scriptwriting/acting. This call-out is for LSFM Year 1 & Year 2 students from animation, audio production, film & TV, media production and photography to register. Please download and complete this LSFM_MENTORING-Student-Form(26May)2017-18 by Friday 26th May 2017.
Remember there are ONLY 20 student places for the new academic year. So please return your form to Louise Lawlor via email before 2nd June 2017. Louise’s email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re selected as a student-mentee you must be available to attend the 1-hour induction on-campus. It’ll be on a Wednesday afternoon from 4pm to 5pm (likely to be between Week 5 and Week 8) in Semester A, 2017-2018.
LSFM mentors have experience from working in corporate companies to running their own businesses. Students who are shortlisted are paired with an available mentor from our database. Please note: LSFM Mentoring is not a matching service! It is a unique chance for a student to link with a professional in the world of work (share ideas, make contacts, explore experiences, network with peers, discuss issues, etc.)
Key points for students:
- Contact time between mentor and mentee is a minimum of 6 in one academic year
- Meetings are flexible and decided by the pairs (contact can be face-to-face, web chat, phone call, etc.)
- Selected students have to be proactive and keep in contact with their mentor during the year
- Student-mentees must attend the 1-hour induction. Wednesday 4pm-5pm (date TBC, Sem A 2017-18)
- Successful mentees will receive a mentoring handbook for guidance
- Complete an online survey at the end of the academic year (for mentors and mentees) for feedback to enable us to develop our mentoring initiative
LSFM Mentoring is in collaboration with the University of Lincoln Careers & Employability team. If you are a professional who is interested in mentoring one of our students please read more here and you can register your interest, anytime. Thank you.
