Want a Creative Industry Mentor?

We are offering 10 University of Kent students from under-represented backgrounds the chance to be partnered with a mentor working in the Creative Industries. This is an exclusive opportunity to get one-to-one access to an experienced creative industry mentor who might share knowledge, open doors and broaden your career horizons. 

Mentors available from many creative industries e.g. Book Publishing, Education, Fashion & Beauty, Film & TV, Government & Campaigning, Museums & Galleries, Music, Newspaper & Magazine Publishing, PR, Advertising & Marketing, Radio, Talent, Technology and/or Theatre.

If your application is successful, you will be matched with a professional in line with your career interests and future aspirations. Mentoring partnerships last for 6 months and we recommend meeting monthly for approximately an hour each time. We will provide training for mentees and mentors, links to further resources and a mentoring agreement for both parties to complete together. The Creative Access team will be on hand to support you and your mentor throughout the process.

Please include as much detail in your application as you can so we can find a suitable mentor for you, plus explain how much this would benefit you. We look forward to receiving your application! To apply – submit this form deadline extended to  5pm, Monday 28 February 2022.
