Reverse Mentoring Scheme
The aim of the Reverse Mentoring programme at BPP is:
- For a student to mentor BPP staff or faculty on a one-on-one basis. To share what it is like for them to attend BPP and to provide a cultural and inclusive exchange.
- The programme encourages dialogue at an individual level; where staff and students experience a much deeper and more open conversation, leading to a far greater appreciation of diversity and inclusion.
To get involved please contact email@example.com.
