Students to Students Nurture and Mentorship Programme was created on 14th November, 2009 to supplement the already existing staff to students’ mentorship.
In this programme, students in second and third years of study are recruited and trained as peer mentors to mentor other students. For one to be a student mentor, the/she must have had a student mentor and a staff mentor and must be willing to mentor at least three student mentees.
The Directorate organizes capacity building seminars and team building retreats for students’ mentors to enhance their mentorship skills. Students’ mentors receive a certificate at the end of their studies.
Recruitment takes place twice in February and October every year.
