Please note that both new and returning mentors will need to attend an online training session to learn our updated systems.
Choose your mentoring sessions
Our prgramme start date is planned for the 22nd January 2022:Choose as many mentoring sessions from the 22nd January 2022 here One Degree is a hybrid programme meaning some sesisons will be online only, some will be in-person only and some a combination of both.There are four options per date – One Degree Maths & English and One Degree Maths and English (Online) – you can choose one or all of these depending on your flexibility.
Please note that we do not yet have these sessions classifed as English or Maths sessions yet but it would be helpful to get a sense of your availability for both online and in-person sessions as this may help us determine what the session will be. You can always remove your name should you change your mind.

We have built our very own Online Mentoring platform over the last 3 years (yes, we started even before COVID!). This will be the place we host online session, communicate with students, get students to submit assigments, complete quizzes, watch replays and more.Register your details to our online mentoring platform here.
Please note unless you are already a fully regsitered and traned mentor, for safeguarding reasons we will not approve your account until after your mentor training, but we would like your registration as ‘pending‘ so that you are ready to go when we are ready / at or after your training session.
