Cambridge Programmes Mentor Applications

Looking for a unique and rewarding summer job?

Sunday 28th July – Saturday 10th August, 2019
Churchill College
£1050 for the two weeks plus free accommodation and meals

We are looking for Undergraduates and Graduates to work as Mentors on our Programmes in the summer of 2019.

We have been running our Programmes for 15 years for boys and girls mainly from Australia and Hong Kong. Our Programmes are highly academic but also a great deal of fun for participants, who build strong bonds with their peers, teachers and, of course, Mentors.

Students are instructed by professional teachers in formal lessons in the morning. They are then divided into small groups of around six working with their Mentors to consolidate their learning. The Mentors’ role is to teach, to organise activities outside lessons and to look after the students in a pastoral role.

Mentors are required to live in College for the two weeks near the students. Mentors are fully supported by our Directors of Studies and our College Programme Dean. We also have a live-in Matron to support the students and mentors when required.

We are keen to hear from undergraduates and graduates of any discipline who have a genuine desire to work with young people and have the passion to inspire them during what is, for many, a life-changing experience.

Please contact Mr Lee Oliver, Admissions Director for further details and a job and person specification or visit Cambridge University Careers Service website to view our full advertisement.
