Mentoring scheme – more mentors needed

Dear Old Maidstonian,

As you may know we have started to run a student mentoring scheme for MGS students (mostly Sixth formers). The idea is to enable students to have one-to-one contact with Old Maidstonians in their sphere(s) of interest. Old Maidstonians cover an enormous range of professional interests and they are often able to give a little guidance on training, university selection, job opportunities, useful contacts and insights into specific careers. So far we have a team of about 30 mentors, covering some of the fields which interest current students. There are however a few fields not covered and others where the demand cannot be satisfied from our current team. Please consider carefully whether you could spare a little time communicating with a student by email, letter or in person. The demands are very light and always under your control. Whatever your job or profession, we would like to put you on our register of mentors. The scheme can only work if we can offer sufficient diversity of areas of interest and geography. (You do not have to live near Maidstone.)

All fields are welcome, but the following is a list of a few for which we have particular needs at present:-
Architecture
Environmental conservation
Film/TV production (several students)
Marine biology
Medicine

Please complete one of the attached forms and e-mail or post it to me.
(Webmaster: the forms can be found at the Mentoring page)

Kind regards,
Peter Weaver
