Insight2University Mentoring Programme - Drop in to find out more!

Wednesday 03 February 2021, 3pm - 4pm

Zoom Call

** This event is cancelled due to no sign-ups **

This is a drop-in session to ask the CEO of with insight education C.I.C, Christine Kinnear questions about the insight2University Mentoring programme. With Insight Education C.I.C. started as the brainchild of Christine Kinnear. Decades after her own university choice was coloured by her fears of fitting in, Christine was disheartened to discover that little has changed in the representation of black-heritage students at top universities.

Are you interested in inspiring more black-heritage school & college pupils to apply to leading universities?  If so, our Insight2Uni e-mentoring programme offers an amazing opportunity to support the next generation of pupils while developing your own interpersonal and leadership skills.

As a positive black-heritage role model, you’ll:

  • Empower your mentee with the confidence to apply to aspirational universities
  • Enable them to make well informed university choices
  • Equip them with the knowledge to create a high quality UCAS application

 “It felt great to help a young student answer questions that took me years to find out,” Sophia, Bristol University mentor.

You can see the impact of the programme on mentors & mentees in our class of 2020 video here

The programme consists of monthly online sessions from March to December with the flexibility to fit them around your existing study schedule.  So, if you are committed to helping young people to shape their future and can offer a maximum of two hours per month then get in touch.

Due to the nature of this role, applications from students from Black heritage backgrounds are strongly encouraged.  Final appointment will be based on merit.

Full training and on-going support will be provided by both UEA and the With Insight team.

Simply complete a short application form here by Friday 26th February
