Aspirational Mentors

Solent University is working with City College on a new peer mentoring initiative to raise the aspirations of college and school students. This is being funded by the Southern Universities Network (

We are looking to recruit 10 peer mentors, ideally who went to school in Southampton, to be trained as peer mentors to work with students at City College.


  • This will involve travelling and mentoring at City College as well as here at Solent for up to 30 hours.
  • You will be paid £8.25 include training, preparation, mentoring, travel time and attendance at events.
  • This may involve some hours working in early evenings.
  • This is a fixed term position from October to December, but this is a new initiative that may be extended into 2019 with additional hours.

About You

  • You will be enthusiastic, a good communicator and keen to help and inspire others to realise their potential.
  • You may have been part of Aim Higher yourself, or been mentored at college - but this isn’t a pre-requisite, what we’re really looking for are students who would like to make a positive impact on a young person’s life.

About Campus Jobs

Campus Jobs is the University’s student recruitment service for opportunities on campus. There are a great variety of jobs, from administration to manual work, in the library, helping at events, in finance, marketing and media resources.

Please note, if you are a holder of a Tier 4 visa you will have certain conditions and working restrictions attached to your visa. Generally, students studying towards a degree level qualification (NQF6) or above are restricted to a maximum of 20 hours work per week during term time, which is reduced to 10 hours per week for students studying below degree level. Please check your visa for more details. It is a criminal offence to breach the conditions of your visa, and anyone found doing so by UK Visas and Immigration is likely to have their permission to stay in the UK cancelled.
