RMIT LEAD academic peer mentoring

LEAD (Learn, Engage, Aspire and Develop). Get involved with a LEAD academic mentoring program in your school.

RMIT LEAD academic peer mentoring is a program where experienced students volunteer some of their time to support student learning. LEAD mentors are recruited through courses and programs and are required to undertake 5 hours of formal training. They must then complete a minimum of 15 hours of voluntary work.

Benefits for mentors and mentees

Mentors have the opportunity to:

  • develop their leadership skills and become more self confident
  • improve their career capabilities
  • consolidate academic knowledge
  • be recognised for their voluntary work by receiving a signed letter of commendation from the Vice Chancellor and notification on their academic transcript.

Mentees are supported by peers to make a smooth transition into RMIT and develop their academic skills. Learning is fun and enjoyable!
