Are you interested in becoming a mentor?

The North London Social Work Teaching Partnership is requesting volunteers for the Mentoring Programme to support Middlesex University Social Work students. 

The Mentoring Programme is an innovative development from Middlesex University, evolved out of learning from the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020. It has been observed that the career progression and opportunities offered to Black, Asian and Global Majority social worker students and practitioners are affected by structural disadvantages and unconscious biases in society. The programme aims to overcome these disadvantages, by focussing on career development, networking and skills for success.

To enable this programme to be successful we are requesting experienced (at least three years post qualifying) social work practitioners to volunteer.  The programme aims to provide six 90 minutes sessions to students over the course of the academic year (2 sessions per term).  We actively encourage applications from Black, Asian and Global Majority group practitioners as these groups are underrepresented.

If you would like to get further information please access the NLSWTP website, see the attached document and/or email info@northlondonsocialwork.co.uk.  

  • The Mentoring Programme will start in October 2022
  • Practitioners can express their interest in the programme by Monday 19 September 2022.
  • Tailored training (focused on the context of mentoring by directly addressing issues of race, racism and inequalities) will be delivered for mentors in October 2022.

If you would like to volunteer please speak to your line manager for permission and send a copy of your CV or:

  • Full Name
  • A short biography about yourself
  • Professional summary/ experience
  • Skills
  • Education

To simona.mot@hackney.gov.uk by 19/09/2022 and we will get in further contact with you.

Kind Regards

North London Social Work Teaching Partnership
