No. Your profile is personal to you, and the School are unable to change it.

I want to find a mentor. What do I do?

Organic searches can be conducted through the website, which has designed to show up suitable ‘matches’ for you. If you are struggling to find someone that you feel is suitable please get in touch with the School via, and Vicki Bradley (Alumni Relations Manager) will be delighted to help you make a connection. Structured mentoring programmes will be run from 2024, giving you the opportunity to be part of a more structured scheme, complete with milestones and introductions. Look out for more information via Bridewell Connect.

What is 'Reverse Mentoring'?

‘Traditional’ mentoring typically sees senior business leaders or individuals mentor more junior counterparts. Reverse mentoring turns this around to enable those often seen as more ‘junior’ to become the mentor. This can be an extremely powerful tool to share knowledge about technology and topics of current cultural relevance. If you would like help in seeking a reverse mentor please contact
