BECOME A MENTOR FOR A FELLOW STUDENT
Would you like to help a fellow student with study planning, structure, and coaching? Become a mentor! It is a paid assignment that will require approximately an hour a week of your time.
For many students, the support of a mentor in higher education is a prerequisite for successfully completing their studies. Mentorship in the context of special educational support means supporting students with special needs to plan and structure their studies. Being a mentor is a rewarding assignment that will help you grow. Hopefully the mentorship will translate to learning and development for you, too, all while you earn some extra money.
Being a mentor in the context of special educational support means offering advice and serving as a discussion partner. No subject-specific skills are required. Your own experiences as a student and existing knowledge of efficient study structure are enough. The expertise you contribute will come from your outsider’s perspective on the student’s studies. You will help with study planning, structure, and some coaching.
You and the student draw up the framework of your work together. As a general rule, you should devote an hour a week of your time. You can choose to meet physically or stay in touch via email or phone.
You will receive a mentorship manual in the form a brochure with clear, concrete advice on mentorship. If you feel that the mentorship is not working out, whatever the reason, you can leave the assignment at any time. The mentorship coordinator is available to help when necessary and will also assist with the follow-up process.
