Calling All Engineering Professionals

Posted: 16th February 2009

The Construction Industry Council will be launching the brand new Mentoring Programme on 12 March 2009.

The response from students and professionals from the industry has been very positive and we are looking forward to what is sure to be a very successful programme.
Owing to demand, we are in need of more mentors from all disciplines within the engineering sector (including mechanical, electrical, structural, and civil engineers). If you are a professional working within this field and would like to be a mentor, please contact us as soon as possible.
The mentoring programme has been developed in partnership with the Construction Industry Council, Newham Education Business Partnership and the London Borough of Newham 14-19 Education team.

The programme involves linking volunteer practitioners from related built environment disciplines with young people aged 14 to 19 years old in Newham, giving the volunteer an invaluable opportunity to support and encourage potential future practitioners. The mentoring programme aims to raise the student’s aspirations and self-esteem, support improvement in their academic performance, develop key functional skills and support informed career choices.
Mentors and mentees will have regular meetings at the students’ school or college where they will share knowledge and information which, will enhance the student’s work-based learning and further develop their practical and academic understanding of their chosen career of interest.
