The Future Mentoring Academy

“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction” – John Crosby

Delivering award-winning mentoring schemes is something that BPS Birmingham Future excels in and that’s why we launched the Future Mentoring Academy in 2015.

Following years of successfully matching students, young professionals and senior leaders, we now offer two schemes that aim to nurture, develop and support the city’s talent.

Aspire Mentoring gives Future members the opportunity to develop their own leadership skills whilst supporting an undergraduate who is looking to start a career in the BPS sector.

Future Mentoring teams a Future member with a senior leader; someone who leads the BPS sector and is able to provide advice and support that will take their career to the next level.

Our experienced and dedicated Mentoring committee runs both schemes, with Future Mentoring having two intakes per year, in Spring and Autumn. The team works with all mentors and mentees to find the most suitable matches, ensuring that everyone involved receives the support they need. Your involvement in the Future Mentoring Academy is what you make it but we suggest meeting for a minimum of one hour per month to discuss goals, tactics and expectations.

By being part of the Future Mentoring Academy, you are playing your part in addressing key issues affecting the city; talent retention, professional development, leadership and CSR… all by dedicating just one hour of your time each month. As a mentee, you get someone who can be your sounding board and on-going careers advisor and, as a mentor you get to enhance your leadership and communication skills whilst also supporting young talent in the city region.
