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!
