ALMP Further Information

The University of Leeds Alumni Leadership Mentoring Programme (ALMP) matches Leeds Alumni with University of Leeds students in their final year of study. If you are in your penultimate year of study, you will be able to apply to be mentored in your final year.

What is the programme?
It is a leadership mentoring programme designed for students aiming to become leaders in their field. Successful applicants will be mentored by a senior professional, a Leeds Alumni who will use their skills, expertise and knowledge to support networking, professional development and guide their mentee as they finalise and refine their career plans. 

How will you benefit?
If you are self-motivated, see yourself as having leadership qualities, have clear ideas of how to get into the career of your choice, but have career-goal related questions that you want to ask a senior professional, then you will absolutely benefit from this mentoring programme.

If you are accepted, you will be matched with an ALMP mentor who is willing to give up their time to support you to perfect your plans for future success. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn from an expert, to widen your professional networks and enhance your skills, as you build a successful and rewarding professional relationship which supports you in reaching your full potential.

How to apply: Applications for 2020/21 are open from Tuesday 24 March 2020. Applications close on Sunday 26 April 2020.

Your commitment

Mentees must be committed to driving the mentoring relationship by managing and maintaining contact with their mentor for a minimum of one hour each month throughout the scheme (plus pre-meeting planning and time to complete any actions).  

Mentees are required to attend a full day induction and training event at the start of the programme. Throughout the programme there will be a number of skills development workshops followed by a workshop at the end of the year. Mentees will maintain regular records of meeting actions; submit a reflective piece at the end of the scheme and either deliver a presentation or write a blog/case study.
