With the help of professionals, they support more than a 1,000 young people every year, who have the ability to flourish in the top universities and professions but who lack the encouragement and networks to help them get there.

SMF are looking for STEM professionals to get involved and provide support by e-mentoring Scottish students on their Aspiring Professionals Programmes.

As an e-mentor you would support the next cohort by giving them the opportunity to have a 1:1 relationship with a professional who can communicate with them for 15-30 minutes every two weeks, predominately via email. Mentors advise students on a range of topics: increasing understanding of careers and professional life, helping guide the student through their time on the SMF programme, making the most of the learning opportunity and helping the student explore their professional interests further, and university applications. Watch the SMF mentoring video to find out more.

To be a mentor you will need to have at least 6 months of experience of working within your professional sector, as increasing knowledge of the career sector will be the basis of the mentoring relationship.
