Mentoring is where there is a longer term relationship between a more experienced person (in employment) and a student, to help the latter develop in their understanding of the world of work.

A mentoring relationship is a supportive and confidential and can be offered to a whole student group, or through a more selective process. The level of commitment expected from the mentor can vary widely, for example the number of times they will meet the mentee (if at all), the duration and the scope of the relationship.
