Some of the Nottingham Advantage Award mentors
This year, for the first time, the Department of History offered a Nottingham Advantage Award (NAA) module which focused on mentoring Ningbo students. Over the last few years the department has run a successful mentoring programme for students who arrive in Nottingham from the Ningbo campus. They are matched with a Nottingham student volunteer, who acts as a friendly face, a point of contact and someone who can answer questions about academic life and British culture.
This year we decided to offer mentors an opportunity to take their mentoring skills to the next level and to participate in a NAA module. The NAA is an employability scheme and the modules included in this award help students to develop key skills in relation to personal development and employability.
The Department would like to congratulate those who successfully completed the module. Many thanks also to all the mentors who made a significant contribution to the student experience in the Department of History. The department plans to build upon this success – please look out for more information about our exciting plans for next year.
