This is an exciting opportunity to become part of a dynamic Tertiary Support Programme, helping students from low socio-economic backgrounds to achieve their goals of graduating with a tertiary qualification. Advisers support tertiary students in their personal and academic development through face to face meetings, joint events and electronic check ins.


Mentors must be graduates themselves, understand how to navigate tertiary institutions and commit to support a student for a year. Advisers and students are matched as far as possible according to educational background, career path, and other factors such as geographical location. The ultimate goal is for the students and adviser to have a meaningful, supportive relationship.
