LCC Industry Mentoring Scheme
Industry Mentoring Scheme
The Industry Mentoring Scheme at London College of Communication aims to encourage and support postgraduate students in their transition from education to industry. The Scheme places LCC postgraduate students of all disciplines with industry professionals to support their development as they enter the creative industries.
- Mentees will have a greater understanding of the creative industries and routes into industry.
- Mentees will increase their confidence in gaining employment in their chosen industry.
- Mentees will be more decisive about their future career plans.
- Mentors will develop a professional network within LCC and relationships with the community of students, alumni and staff.
- Free training for mentors and mentees run by a nationally accredited trainer and facilitator with extensive experience in running and supporting career and employability-related mentoring programmes.
Applications for the 2018/19 academic year are now open. Open to all current LCC postgraduate students (taught or research). The mentee application for this academic year closes on Sunday 2 December 2018.
See yourself as a mentor? Are you an UAL/LCC alumni or industry professional working in the creative industries and have an understanding of the issues facing creative students entering the industry?
The mentor application closes on Monday 3 December 2018. If you have any queries get in touch with Luminita Molico at firstname.lastname@example.org
